Frank Lloyd Wright's hilltop masterpiece in Los Feliz, the Hollyhock House, reopened this past February after five years of restoration, looking more or less as it did when it was completed in 1921 (in most areas). The first night it was open to the public (for a full 24 hours!), it drew some seriously long lines, but now there's a way to get a brief but comprehensive video tour of the house—inside and out, above and at ground-level—without going anywhere. Narrated by Hollyhock curator Jeffrey Herr, the drone tour below, from Houzz, touches on the history of Hollyhock (built for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall) and walks viewers through sections of the renovation process, all the while zooming in and out of the house for some fantastic, rare views.
