The personal studio and residence of Lloyd Wright, the son of Frank Lloyd Wright, is currently on the market for nearly $6 million in West Hollywood.
Designed by Lloyd Wright in 1927, the Lloyd Wright Studio Residence is a unique architectural masterpiece that showcases the popular design styles of Wright and his father, including the signature patterned, interlocking concrete Joshua Tree textile blocks.
The Southern California home and studio are separated into an upstairs residence and ground-floor work space, together offering 2,413 square feet of indoor space. The upstairs living unit features a grand living room with a fireplace and glass alcove, along with a dining room, kitchen, family room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The architect utilized the downstairs unit as his studio, which opens up to an enclosed outdoor patio through a sliding wall. The idyllic indoor/outdoor workspace features a fountain and pre-Columbian statue and at the time showcased samples of Lloyd’s work to potential clients and those who came to visit. The studio also features concrete floors and desert-green interlocking blocks along the walls that portray the shapes of cacti and continue up into the living space.
Lloyd Wright established his practice in Los Angeles in 1916 and also helped out with many of his father’s projects in Southern California, using the West Hollywood residence and studio as his space for creativity. In the early 1990s, Lloyd’s son, Eric Lloyd Wright, renovated the property by installing a new foundation and repairing the concrete blocks that had deteriorated over time.
The Lloyd Wright Studio Residence is now listed in the National Register of Historic Landmarks and locally designated by the Los Angeles Conservancy. View the listing here.
