The Aline Barnsdall Hollyhock House in the East Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright originally as a residence for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall (built, 1919–1921). The building is now the centerpiece of the city's Barnsdall Art Park. In July 2019, along with seven other buildings designed by Wright in the 20th century, it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is the first time modern American architecture has been recognized on the World Heritage List.Put Hollyhock House into our Los Angeles online holiday planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Los Angeles.

Hollyhock House Reviews
Took the outdoor tour where we learn a lot about the history of the house from the Docent. The outside is not typical of FLW but then you get to the inside: Wright at his best. Beautiful interior..... more »
The project would have been magnificent but the sponsor got tired of architect’s delays and astronomical numbers over budget. What remains is a beautiful park with a small museum and a Frank Lloyd... more »
Fantastic staff! We arrived too late for the guided tour but staff was peppered throughout the house to guide and give an oral history of the house's features. There are programs when you go in with many of the same details if that's your preference. The house is in the process of being restored and many parts previously roped off are now able to viewed by the public. Our guide said the upstairs will soon be open and a virtual tour of the upstairs bedroom is available online.
Excellently designed house, reasonable price, very well written guidebook and friendly staff. House is well looked after by the city and guests are treated well by employees, who explain the rules kindly. Very impressed, only issue is that half the house was closed off when clearly it was meant for visitors, such as the entire east wing of the house. It would be nice if the inner courtyard and bridge were available to walk in (or at least the doors open) so that Wright’s intention of “uniting indoor and outdoor” could be seen by visitors. Recommend to anyone with a spare $7 and 45 minutes, interested in architecture or design when in the area.
