La Maison a Bordeaux

In 1994, a disabled man owning property in Bordeaux, France approached the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas to build a complex, handicap accessible house for him. This is what Koolhaas designed:

Maison a Bordeaux Exterior at Night

Excellent side views of the house's tri-level hydraulic elevator

View of the house from the foot of the hill

A comfortable nook for reading, sunbathing, or star gazing
