Lloyd Wright Studio
858 N Doheny
Los Angeles CA 90069

858 Doheny was built in 1927 by Frank Lloyd Wright’s son Lloyd Wright (who is often confused with his father) as his studio and office. Much like Rudolph Schindler home/studio built on Kings drive five years earlier, Lloyd Wright would live and work in this home until his passing in the 1978.

Located at the corner of Doheny Drive and Vista Grande St in the Norma Triangle neighborhood of West Hollywood- the home is on a compact 3,611 square foot corner lot. The Home is two stories with 2 Bedrooms and 2 Baths measuring 2,413 square feet.

The home is built with “Joshua Tree” motif textile blocks, that Lloyd Wright use frequently in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The Upstairs is the living space and Lloyd Wright’s architecture office was downstairs.

Lloyd Wright began his architectural career as a landscape architect and his love for greenery and plants is reflected in his studio. He has creeping Ivy that has grown to cover much of the exterior.

The upstairs residence has a large living room with fireplace, angled glass and a large master bedroom. The downstairs studio has an open work space with exposed concrete flooring that connects to a rock outdoor patio.

In 1990 Eric Wright (Frank Lloyd Wright’s grandson) restored the house. The building is on the national register of historic places and has a conservation easement over its exterior.
