Borisas Goldbergas Residential House in Kaunas

Address: Kauno m. sav., Kauno m., V. Putvinskio g. 52

The six-apartment residential house was characterised by very simple architecture closely resembling international modernism. The composition was based on pure white facades, well-defined lines, wide windows, and minimalist “French balconies”. However, clear symmetry, mezzanine floor highlighted by dark finish not only give more solid look to the building, but also slightly resemble elements of historicism in Lithuanian interwar modernism. Nevertheless, during interwar the building was considered to be “modern, exemplary and was included in the award list in 1937”. Technical maintenance was carried out by construction engineer Volfas Brūnas.
