This Los Angeles villa, located in Los Feliz, on the Hollywood Hills, was designed by architect guru Frank Lloyd Wright in 2013 for Charles and Mabel Ennis.

The construction, completed in 1924 and inspired by the ancient Mayan temples, is characterized by a structure consisting of 27 thousand blocks of prefabricated concrete with decorative patterns in relief.

The whole house, which due to its particular design seems to loom over the neighborhood as an ancient temple, extends for half an acre and is, composed of two buildings, equipped with balconies, patios and wraparound walkways, a large pool and a pond: the main house and a small apartment with independent garage.

The interiors are embellished with concrete columns, huge lead glass windows, marble and wood floors, coffered ceilings, custom chandeliers and mosaic tile walls.

All these features have attracted the attention of several directors who, over the years, have used Ennis House as a movie set.

Already in 1933 the director Michael Curtiz (the same of Casablanca) shot scenes set in the works of Lloyd Wright for parts of the film Female, the story of a career woman played by Ruth Chatterton; while shortly after it hosts the troupe of "The Black Cat", film, vaguely inspired by the homonymous story by Edgar Allan Poe, which sees protagonists, for the first time together, the two greatest actors of horror films of the '30s: Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi.

The moment of maximum popularity for the villa comes however in 1982 when it becomes the home of the policeman Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) in Blade Runner by Ridley Scott.

From Mulholland Drive to Black Rain, from Karate Kid III to Game of Thrones, the building inspired by the ancient Mayan temples was the set of over one hundred films, TV series, video clips and photo shoots , becoming so iconic that it was included in the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
