The building illustrates early attempts, based on recreating folk architecture traits, to construct a national style. “Tulpė” was one of the first cooperative houses to be built in independent Lithuania. Each floor had two five-room apartments.

Year: 1925–1926. Style: National. Architect Antanas Macijauskas.
