A modern and innovative Office of the Bank of Lithuania in Kaunas gave a new start for the construction of new bank buildings in smaller towns. The architect of the Office of the Bank of Lithuania, Professor Mykolas Songaila, seems to have been loaded with work. He designed new bank buildings in Panevėžys, Kėdainiai, and Mažeikiai. A similar building, although not that luxurious, was built in Raseiniai. Its ground floor contains a transaction hall, whereas the first floor has residential apartments.
