The Opus is a fluid, spatial building that refutes traditional definiteions of office functionality. Constructed of three separate towers the building will appear as a singular unified whole, that hovers from the ground, with a distinctive free form void. The interiors of which will be clad with a fully engineered curved glass curtain wall to allow for eye-catching views into the void. Reflexive fritting patterns in the form of pixilated striations will be applied onto the glass facade to provide a degree of reflectivity and materiality to the cube while assisting in the reduction of solar gains inside the building.

A single cube eroded by a free-form void:

A masterwork of design whose repertoire gravitates towards interconnectedness and originality, The Opus comprises two structures that form a single cube which appears to ‘hover’ above the ground, eroded by a fluid void.

The art of the void:

The Opus captures the void during the day and illuminates it at night bringing to life the distinct character of the building. The peculiar, reflective façade of the void is the centrepiece of architectural creativity and cultural art form that defines the Opus.
