Koolhaas Houselife | BêkaFilms


Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine of BêkaFilms made a film called Koolhaas Houselife on the iconic Maison à Bordeaux private residence built back in 1998. They didn’t want the film to be yet another movie about architecture so they left out all the explaining of the building and introduced a new way of presenting architectural projects – more pictures and sounds.

”The work of Bêka and Lemoine offers us a portrait of the real and changing vitality of one of those monuments that we believe are immortal. This is realized through the stories and daily chores of Guadalupe Acedo, the home’s caretaker and housekeeper, and the other people who look after the building. Following and interacting with Guadalupe, blooms an unusual and unpredictable look at the spaces and structure of the building.”

In their Living Architecture series are also films about Richard Meiers Jubilee Church near Rome and Herzog & de Meuron’s Pomerol winery.
