The Ennis House is a building located in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, south of Griffith Park. It was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Charles and Mabel Ennis in 1923, and built in 1924.
Following "La Miniatura" aka Millard House (Pasadena) and the Storer and Freeman House (Hollywood), the building is the fourth and most monumental of buildings in northern Los Angeles constructed mostly of interlocking pre-cast concrete blocks (Wright's " textile block" style). Its design was based on ancient Mayan temples and along with other buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright (A.D. German Warehouse, Wisconsin and Hollyhock House, Hollywood), the Ennis House is sometimes referred to as an example of the Mayan Revival style. Its prominent detail is the relief ornament on its textile blocks, inspired by the symmetrical reliefs of Mayan buildings in Uxmal.
