Bladerunner (Dir: Ridley Scott, 1982)

Ennis House 2655 Glendower Ave., Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California, USA.

The Ennis House (also known as the Ennis-Brown House) is an wholly unique piece of architecture, built entirely out of square, ornately carved concrete blocks, and though it was built in 1923, it fits perfectly into Deckard’s strange, sordid art deco styled future. It’s design and carvings are based on that of an ancient South American temple and it‘s internal spaces are wide, open plan and angular, with several internal balconies.

The house is a famous place in it own right, but has been used over and over again as both an internal and external location. In Blade Runner, Deckard drives up to the house so you get a glimpse of the outside (but it’s dark and you might be distracted by his futuristic car), then some of the internal apartment shots are location and some are in a studio where a portion of the house was rebuilt, complete with cast patterned concrete tiles.

Incidentally you can buy the faux concrete block tiles and re-create your own Blade Runner set… The films closing scenes at J.F. Sebastian’s house were shot in another iconic building, the Bradbury Building, 304 S. Broadway, Downtown, Los Angeles (which was also used in the film Chinatown.).
