Hollyhock House information
Oil heiress Aline Barnsdall commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design this hilltop home in 1919. As happens with rich eccentrics and stubborn geniuses, the project ended sourly and was finished by architect Rudolph Schindler. Due to Wright’s Romanza-style design there’s an easy flow between rooms and courtyards. Note abstract imagery of the hollyhock, Aline’s preferred flower, throughout.
