The house is unique in Lithuania because of its façade – its unusual spatial plasticity is akin to expressionism. The plan for this house, which belonged to Mina Kotkauskienė, is typical for Laisvės Avenue buildings: the first storey is for shops, the others are residential. There is no record of who designed this house; it might have been the engineer Jonas Salenekas who, as we know from historical sources, helped to manage many of Kotkauskienė’s business affairs. In subsequent years (1942–1949) a famous Lithuanian composer and conductor Juozas Tallat-Kelpša lived here. Year: 1929–1930. Style: Modernism.
