Frank Lloyd Wright

function private house

Hollyhock House (1919–1921) is Frank Lloyd Wright’s first Los Angeles project, representing his earliest efforts to develop an architecture style for Southern California. Wright himself referred to it as California Romanza, using a musical term meaning 'freedom to make one’s own form'. Hollyhock House is a remarkable combination of house and gardens. A series of rooftop terraces extend the living space and provide magnificent views of the Los Angeles basin and Hollywood Hills. Wright and Barnsdall worked together to develop a plan that included a home for Barnsdall and her daughter, 2 secondary residences, theater, director’s house, dormitory for actors, studios for artists, shops and motion picture theater. Because of financial and artistic differences, only the main home and two secondary residences were built. Feb 2015 it reopened after several years when a major restoration was completed. The original garage was outfitted as a brand new visitors center, museum store and archive.
