Gehry's first residential development in Asia - an elegant 12-storey spiral featuring glass-enclosed load-bearing columns that 'float' like reeds around the façade - proved 'a challenge because of its flowery shape,' says Pushelberg. 'But that makes for a more interesting result.'
Each floor of the Frank Gehry-designed Opus rotates around a central core unhindered by structural columns, so there is an organic flow around the 625sq m space. Pictured is the family room of the Yabu Pushelberg-designed show apartment, featuring a custom-made brass console by Beverly Hills-based Scala Luxury and a photograph by Candida Höfer
A banquette backed by a sliding bronze-finished screen, both designed by Yabu Pushelberg, make the dining space unexpectedly private. The Cervino dining chairs by Marcel Wolterinck are covered in C&C Milano wools and the table is by Nota Bene
The 12-seat marble dining table and distinctive pendant light were custom designed by Yabu Pushelberg. Lighting in the space is controlled by iPad
Yabu Pushelberg's deft design frames the spectacular views without taking over. The centrepiece of the living space is a cast-bronze Kailash coffee table, available through Chista. Yabu custom-designed the silk rug and asymmetrical sofas, which are stuffed with the same goose down used by Moncler
The bathroom, framed with seductive Bruno Elegante stone from Brazil, features an amorphous bath and sleek steel taps from Kallista's ONE Collection. Of the room, Pushelberg says: 'Architecture should be iconic but interiors are emotional'
'There is a feeling about those curves - a mystery to them - that relaxes me,' says Pushelberg of the master bedroom. The curved-metal geometric-patterned headboard is a Yabu Pushelberg design. Storage is by Poliform Hong Kong
Designed by Frank Gehry, the Opus is sited on a Hong Kong peak, with views to both the city and the hillside
