HOLLYHOCK HOUSE was Frank Lloyd Wright’s first Los Angeles commission and an ode to California – its freedom and natural beauty. Built between 1919 and 1921 for Aline Barnsdall, the house introduced young architects Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra to Los Angeles. It is a harbinger of California Modernism, which came to include celebrated homes by all three visionaries that continue to impact the direction of residential design. Today, Hollyhock House is owned by the City of Los Angeles and operated by the Department of Cultural Affairs.

Famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House in Hollywood has reopened to the general public after a five-year restoration. To celebrate this historic moment, the house was open for 24 hours of self-guided tours. Notwithstanding the extended opening day hours, the house was continuously bustling with guests as Angelenos impatiently waited in line to explore the architectural treasure. Wright was particularly attracted to the project due to Olive Hill’s unique landscape: In addition to its beautiful olive trees, it is located on a rare natural hill in the midst of the bustling, predominantly urban area in Hollywood.
