Taking advantage of Los Angeles’ dry, temperate climate, Hollyhock House is a remarkable combination of house and gardens. In addition to the central garden court, each major interior space adjoins an equivalent exterior space, connected either by glass doors, a porch, pergola or colonnade. A series of rooftop terraces further extend the living space and provide magnificent views of the Los Angeles basin and the Hollywood Hills.

Hollyhock House Reviews
This was a great way to spend 2 hours. We did the outdoor tour and then visited the indoors which is staffed by four docents who are all eager to share their knowledge of the house. If you're a fan of... more »
One feels that over time this house has been often both misused and misunderstood. Personally I found the austere exterior rather uniniteresting (even with a racoon sleeping on one of the ledges!!) I ... 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.
