Opus Hong Kong
Showroom apartment in a building designed by Frank Gehry
Recently presented apartment showroom of Yabu Pushelberg design duet in Opus Hong Kong building, designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, brings a sense of high glamor in a city where most luxury houses are conformist. It was Gehry's innovative design that was seduced by a Canadian duet: “At first client understands the value of design,” explains Glenn Pushelberg, “and the building itself is intriguing.”
Apartment for an imaginary client is the second home for a stylish, wealthy Shanghai couple who are shopping and having fun. “We made the city side more dramatic, but not too theatrical, while the side of private mountain areas became more airy,” says George Yabu.
Lobby in modern style prefers chinoiserie with a series of hand-painted screens by Moss & Lam, while the strategic interior of the living room and dining room is framed by stunning views from the windows. The 12-seater marble dining table and the characteristic hanging light are perfect for parties. Light mood - from daytime to cocktail hour and until the evening - is controlled via the iPad.
At the same time master bedroom accessed through a curved corridor lit by Luster Facette No. 283 suspension by Herve van der Straeten is a more intimate space with custom-made Scala Luxury bunk nightstands and mysterious Bubble lamps designed by Caleb Siemon.
Despite the remarkable brilliance throughout the space, Pushelberg emphasizes excellent performance and high flow. “The mood of home design is changing,” he says. “It's not so much about gilding, but about the quality of design and attention to detail. This is not about the most expensive materials, the functionality should also be.
