Hollyhock is a Frank Lloyd Wright designed house in Los Angeles. It was commissioned by Aline Barnsdall, who never lived in the house and instead donated it to the city. She lived in one of the guest houses, but apparently wasn’t happy with Wright’s design. She wanted a theatre.
It feels like a Wright-inspired prairie home with a California spirit.
Photography was not allowed inside so I had to settled for the outside only.
These are the windows of the master suite. We weren’t allowed in this part of the house due to ADA issues with accessibility. I would love a wall of windows in my bedroom.
One of the docents speculates that the 3 levels around this fountain were Wright’s version of the theatre Aline wanted.
The stained glass throughout the house was lovely, and signature Frank Lloyd Wright.
