The John Sowden House
by Lloyd Wright in Los Feliz
The John Sowden House, also known as the “Jaws House” or the “Franklin House”, was built in 1926 in Los Feliz.
The original owner, John Sowden, was a painter and photographer who hired his friend, Lloyd Wright, eldest son of Frank Lloyd Wright, to build his luxurious home in Los Feliz.
The house has been recognized as one of Lloyd Wright’s most important works and a landmark in the Los Angeles area for its imposing Mayan-style front facade and temple-like features.
The interior of the house, based on a courtyard which communicates with all living spaces in the residence, was designed for entertaining.
The house has been thoroughly renovated and now accommodates modern living while preserving Lloyd Wright’s masterwork.
