Opera Residences is a landmark multi-residential building of 104 apartments over 20 levels that completes the colonnade leading to the Sydney Opera House (SOH).
At its base, Opera Residences’ grand colonnade includes three levels of retail and hospitality, completing the public walkway at East Circular Quay and reinvigorating a previously blighted waterfront area.
Opera Residences was conceived as a fluid form in stone, concrete and glass, generating a continuous sequence of experiences and distinct expressive elements on all four facades.
The apartment divisions are disguised by glass bay windows to enhance the concept of fluidity and interior outlook using a combination of opaque, fritted and transparent glass bent to tight radii.
Observing its proximity to the world heritage listed SOH and Fort Denison, Opera Residences provides high levels of interior residential amenity and enriches the public domain at Circular Quay and on Macquarie Street.
