The Hollyhock House and the Ennis House. FLW!

While in Los Angeles, we visited the Hollyhock house on Hollywood Blvd. with my sister Holli. It was built in 1919 by Frank Lloyd Wright and takes it’s name from the flower. The house is currently undergoing a major renovation to restore it to it’s original condition in the many years to come. From the hilltop, you can see one of his four concrete buildings slightly camouflaged into the hillside, The Ennis House, so naturally we drove up to see it in person. It’s privately owned so there are no interior tours but you can only imagine what in would be like to live in a Mayan fortress. Fortunately, there’s a glimpse inside because it was Harrison Ford’s apartment in Blade Runner!

The Ennis House immersed into it’s landscape.

The compound I wish to someday enter but for now there’s this…

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
