In 2005, famous designer and architect Maarten van Severen dies. He left us with one of the most extraordinary collections of furniture and several exquisite architectural project but also 4 young sons who carry part of their father’s talent and personality. While we follow the boys’ steps towards a promising future, we reconstruct the tumultuous and tragical life of their father. When his sons get confronted with some of the same challenges and problems as their father, history seams to repeat itself.

Koolhaas Houselife portrays one of the masterpieces of contemporary architecture of recent years: the house in Bordeaux, designed by Rem Koolhaas / OMA in 1998.
The film lets the viewer enter into the daily intimacy of the house through the stories and daily chores of Guadalupe Acedo, the housekeeper, and the other people who look after the building. As we follow and interact with Guadalupe, an unusual and unpredictable look at the spaces and structure of the building opens up.
