Swire Properties has unveiled the show apartment
for Opus Hong Kong, the first residential project in Asia by
legendary architect Frank Gehry.
“In Opus Hong Kong, Frank Gehry has created one
of the most significant new works of domestic architecture in
Asia,” said Martin Cubbon, Chief Executive of Swire Properties. “Gehry’s
breathtaking design and the building’s exceptional location
demanded the very best in interiors. We are therefore delighted to
collaborate with renowned North American design firm Yabu
Pushelberg, whose award-winning work attracts wide praise in the
The show apartment fills the tenth floor of Opus
Hong Kong, where its interior acknowledges the building’s
spiralling architecture and the surrounding influences of nature
as well as the expectations of its residents.
“This building represents such an exceptional
union of nature and modern design that we wanted to continue that
sense of balance into our interior,” said Glenn Pushelberg. “Our
approach combines natural materials and bespoke modern furnishings
in an organic scheme that flows through the apartment and makes
the most of the light-filled space. Residents of an exceptional
building such as this are looking for an interior that is unique
and bespoke and yet which recognizes and responds to its context.
We are confident we have achieved that balance at Opus Hong Kong.”
With panoramic views of the city skyline, Opus
Hong Kong comprises two double-level garden apartments and ten
apartments of some 6,000-6,900 sq ft, each occupying an entire
floor of the 12-storey building.
“The completion of Opus Hong Kong continues our
vision to bring highly creative and innovative new architecture to
the communities in which we work, and we truly believe Opus Hong
Kong will serve as a new milestone in bespoke residential living
for the 21st century,” added Martin Cubbon.
Viewings of Opus Hong Kong are available
strictly by appointment only.
