4800 Hollywood Boulevard
Leaving the Arclight, continue on Sunset to Vine. Turn left on Vine and then right on Hollywood Boulevard. Hollyhock House is on the right, up the hill.
Frank Lloyd Wright's first California commission was to be a an arts complex with theaters, residences and shops. Some structures were never built and only two houses survive. Hollyhock House, built as a private residence has been partly renovated and is open for tours. This Hollywood house has been listed among the architect's most important works and it's well worth a stop if you're visiting Hollywood and don't let all our fancy talk about it put you off. It's in a beautiful location with great views of Hollywood and the house is both gorgeous and interesting, even by modern standards.
Even if you aren't interested in touring the house or if you arrive when no tour is offered, you can see it from the outside. Its hilltop location also provides some of the best views in Los Angeles. Some of the landmarks sights you can see in the nearby Hollywood Hills include the Griffith Observatory (large white structure with black, dome-shaped roofs) and the Hollywood Sign. The large, mud-colored structure almost directly across the valley is the Ennis House, another Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Los Angeles home.
If you've seen enough, you can return to where you started at Hollywood and Highland by going west on Hollywood Boulevard (left turning out of the park) - but there's more to see. Take a side trip to see the Hollywood Sign and Warner Bros Studios or Sunset Strip.
