Ennis House

A residential dwelling in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, the home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Charles and Mabel Ennis in 1923, and built in 1924. The structure is the fourth and largest of Wright's textile block designs, constructed primarily of interlocking pre-cast concrete block. The Ennis House is sometimes referred to as an example of the Mayan Revival architecture. Its prominent detail is the relief ornamentation on its textile blocks, inspired by the symmetrical reliefs of Mayan buildings in Uxmal.
