Took a docent guided tour of this gem on top of a hill in Hollywood. It's in Barnsdall Park at (roughly) Hollywood and Vermont. Excellent example of FLR at his best...beautiful sight lines and his quirky take on deco.

Hollyhock House is a Frank Lloyd Wright house located on a hill in Los Angeles with terrific views of Los Angeles, the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory. The house incorporates many of Wright's familiar design attributes, and is most notable for its hollyhock design motif, which is repeated throughout the property (as well as on surrounding modern buildings and...

The Hollyhock House recently underwent a massive restoration, and the results are spectacular! I've visited many FLW sites, but this style is unique to California. You'll certainly appreciate it if you are a fan, but it's well worth a visit even if you're just discovering FLW-in large part because of the wonderful docents. They are extremely well trained and knowledgable,... More

Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius as were his subordinates, who played a large part in the making of Hollyhock House. There is a short docent led tour of the grounds which included a lot of the history of the house and its eccentric owner, Alice Barnsdall. The house itself has a few rooms open to the public and some... More

What a story this house has to tell - Aline Barnsdall had Frank Lloyd Wright design this house for her - her favorite flower being the Hollyhock. Wright designed his hollyhock which is featured in many places in the home in various iterations - stone, wood (chairs). Wright then went off to do the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, Japan, and... More

The history behind this Frank Lloyd Wright home is very interesting. The setting is beautiful. I would also encourage any visitors to stop in the Los Angeles Municpal Art Gallery which is right on the same property.

We were fortunate enough to visit on a day when the house is open to the public. Incredibly beautiful, well kept and with great comments from the volunteer guides on the spot. Highly recommended attraction in LA !

... while the walking tour in the rooms open to the public is worth the trip, too much of the house is either not restored or restored for special purpose use. An observant visitor however can get a sense of the house's original design, but a before/after video in the garage or a decent set of pre-restoration pictures would greatly... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
