De­signed to evoke reeds sway­ing gen­tly in a breeze, Frank Gehry's Opus is an ar­chi­tec­tural marvel, perched atop Vic­to­ria Peak. Inside, smooth curves echo the ex­te­rior of the build­ing.


屹立太平山頂的O­pus出自Frank Gehry之手,外型有如蘆葦在微風中吹送,可謂是驚世建築。內裡可見跟外牆同樣矚目的流動彎形設計。

"I wanted to make some­thing in­cred­i­bly beau­ti­ful that peo­ple would re­spect and love for gen­er­a­tions," says Frank Gehry of Opus – his first res­i­den­tial build­ing in Asia – in Opus Hong Kong: A Mono­graph by Mar­cus Field. Com­pleted in 2012, the strik­ing struc­ture was in­spired by the breath­tak­ing scenery sur­round­ing it. "I thought the build­ing, in such a beau­ti­ful spot, should have an or­ganic feel to it," con­tin­ues Gehry. Finely tuned glass-en­closed col­umns form the po­etic ex­te­rior, twist­ing up and around the build­ing like reeds sway­ing in the breeze. "It gives a del­i­cacy to the fa­cade," the ac­claimed ar­chi­tect notes. Com­pris­ing 12 ex­pan­sive units, each apart­ment boasts floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows that com­mand 360-de­gree views of Vic­to­ria Har­bour and Mount Cameron, and sets a new bench­mark for lux­u­ri­ous res­i­dences in the city.

「我想打造出人們能世代敬重和心愛的美麗作品。」Frank Gehry設計其首個亞洲住宅大樓O­pus時,在Mar­cus Field­的著作O­pus Hong Kong: A Mono­graph說過。項目於2012年完工,奪目結構源自美不勝收的景致。Gehry續說:「如詩般美的建築當然不能失卻天然美學。」修飾精緻的玻璃柱成就獨特外牆,就好像蘆葦在微風中吹送。這位著名建築師指:「這為外牆注入細膩觸感。」建築附有12個寬敞單位,每個建有落地玻璃,飽覽360度維港和金馬倫山道景色,為城中豪宅奠下新基準。
