I just caught a trailer of this documentary, which resembles 2001: A Space Odyssey in spirit. Koolhaas Houselife is basically a film by Ila Beka and Louise Lemoine, which follows the life of a housekeeper in one of the Dutchman’s houses in France.

Designed by OMA and built in 1998, the Maison a Bordeaux is in Bordeaux. That bit of nifty info came from my superior analytical ability. Its set on a hill and conceptually, its 3 houses in one, linked by a giant moving mechanical lift with no sides, moving very cleanly throughout. You can see that and much more in the following trailers.
