I’ve always loved Frank Gehry’s work. Living in NYC I’m able to walk by some of his buildings weekly, most notably and my favorite, the IAC building in Chelsea.
After recently inter-stumbling upon a real estate story stating that Hong Kong Real Estate hit a new high.. (an apartment sold at approx. $61million, putting the price paid per sq ft ($9,773 USD) as the highest in HK history ) My curiosity got the best of me and I had to delve in further. The sale was for an apartment at the Frank Gehry-designed Opus building in Hong Kong.
After checking out a few initial photographs on google photos, I just had to look up the building. I inter-stumbled to the Opus HK building website and found a delightful documentary on Frank Gehry’s visionary collaboration with HK developer, Swire Properties.
The documentary puts HK in a light I had never seen, all of a sudden all of the imagery I’ve sodden my mind with of a smog-laden environment was wiped away and accented with lush greenery and stunning views.
Please delight yourself and watch for yourself.
OPUS HONG KONG is a visionary collaboration between Frank Gehry, one of the world’s most influential architects of modern times, and innovative Hong Kong developer, Swire Properties.
Set in a remarkable hillside location between Happy Valley and The Peak on Hong Kong Island, OPUS HONG KONG comprises two double-level garden apartments and ten unique apartments – each one occupying an entire floor, enjoying unprecedented 360° views and some 6,000 to 6,900 sq ft (560 – 640 sqm) of space.
