Frank Lloyd Wright's ENNIS HOUSE, 1924. Perfectly sited on a hill with sweeping views of the city to the ocean, the light-filled interiors are enhanced by architectural details such as soaring wood-beamed ceilings, a window-lined loggia framing the pool, and a flowing multi-tired floorplan. Wright's signature appointments - prairie-style leaded art glass, mitered windows, & the best remaining example of one of only four glass mosaic-tile fireplaces- further distinguish this historic offering.
This house isn't about other features. It's about lots and lots of cement.
WHAT MAKES THIS A BUNGALUX
Frank Lloyd Wright's Mayan landmark
- • History Lesson:
- • The Ennis House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built by his son Lloyd Wright, is arguably the best example of Mayan residential architecture in the world.
- • Built in 1924 for retailer Charles Ennis and his wife Mabel, the house is the last and largest of the elder Wright's four Los Angeles-area "textile block" houses which feature patterned and perforated concrete blocks that give a unique textural appearance to both their exteriors and interiors. The house and chauffeur's quarters were constructed of more than 27,000 concrete blocks, all made by hand using decomposed granite extracted from the site
- • The house underwent structural damage in the Northridge quake and 2004 slides. Although it has been partially restored, the house is still closed to the public.
