Opus Hong Kong (Chinese: 傲璇; Jyutping: ngou6 syun4; pinyin: Àoxuán) is a 12-storey, 42.62 m (139.8 ft) residential high-rise completed in 2012 at 53 Stubbs Road on Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. The project was designed by Frank Gehry in collaboration with Ronald Lu and Partners, and developed by Swire Properties. It was Gehry's first Asian residential project.[3]

The building consists of 12 residential units which range from 560 to 640 m2 (6,000 to 6,900 sq ft), including two duplexes with pools. Additional features on the 3,020 m2 (32,500 sq ft) site include underground parking, swimming pools, gyms, rainwater recycling for irrigation, and electric car charge systems. A 580 m2 (6,200 sq ft) apartment, taking up the entire eighth floor, became the most expensive apartment in Hong Kong when it was sold for HK$470 million in August 2012 .[4]

The British Consul-General to Hong Kong has resided here since 2013.[5]
