As predicted, the just-opened, totally restored Hollyhock House at Barnsdall Art Park is a wedding proposal wonderland, thanks to the hard work put in by the landmark's curator Jeffrey Herr, Hsiao-Ling Ting of the city's Bureau of Engineering, and Kevin Jew of the nonprofit Project Restore, which wrote the grant for the project. Our sister site Curbed LA offers a full tour of the highly-anticipated makeover, breaking down its exact features from the upgraded Modernist entryway to a "showstopping hearth backed in an abstract, Hollyhock-themed bas relief, with a detailed skylight above and a pool below."
