Petit Futé's opinion on HOLLYHOCK HOUSE

Vintage plate 2020

In Barnsdall Park, at the top of a Mediterranean-style hill with a particularly stunning view of Griffith Park and the Observatory, is the unique home of billionaire Alice Barnsdall. It bears the name of its favourite flower, the hollyhock rose, which can be found sculpted in several places on the façade and painted in the villa's interior decoration. Hollyhock House is a major monument in the history of architecture in Los Angeles, as it is the first creation of the great modernist architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the City of Angels. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 7, 2019, along with eight other creations by Frank Lloyd Wright. A beautiful tribute to his 50 years of career.

Built between 1919 and 1921 for the heiress of millionaire Theodore Barnsdall, an oil magnate, the splendid residence perfectly reflects the Arts and Crafts spirit in vogue at the time: use of natural light, respect for the natural environment of the house, relatively modest proportions and craftsmanship in furniture and decoration. However, her landlord immediately became angry with her and did not live there for more than a few months. The project, to whose design Alice Barnsdall was closely linked, originally included two residences, a theatre, an artists' studio, a shop, a dormitory for actors and a cinema. This true artistic colony never saw the light of day because of the dissensions between the architect and the rich heiress and only the main residence and a smaller house for guests (which cannot be visited) were built
