From the continuous canopy of shady trees that line Hutt Street, OPUS rises with a sculptural quality that sets it apart from the ordinary.
Moulded window bays and delicate, fluted concrete cladding create an iconic building.
Distinctive curved balconies and substantial setbacks reduce the mass of the building and provide spacious living spaces.
With OPUS, you’ll find a harmony between the exterior of the building and the living spaces within.
With just 46 apartments, your life becomes intimate, private and unique.
OPUS on Hutt Street is committed to creating a sustainable environment. The site has not been over-developed.
Set on a podium of quality retail space and separated by a single boutique commercial floor, there is a human scale to OPUS.
Double glazing and high thermal wall materials create a highly efficient environment, whilst the car parks are future-proofed with infrastructure for electric car chargers.
“The aim was to create high-quality apartments with all the amenities of a family home while offering all the advantages of amazing views and city living lifestyle. We felt the vision to create an exemplary development would be possible if we combined the best of a sought-after location, considered design planning and a sculptured architectural expression.”
“From the very beginning, we have wanted to make our intentions clear.
We wanted a landmark building – an exterior that had a very definite language and sense of style. Enzo Caroscio is widely considered one of Adelaide’s most accomplished architects.
Enzo has not only designed some of Adelaide’s most recognised commercial buildings, but a number of our most significant homes. We are already impressed and delighted by his work.
While the look of the building and specifications will be of the highest quality, we are building a collection of homes rather than a block of apartments.
These are homes that allow residents to live in the style and comfort that they are accustomed to.
They will have a scale and quality that South Australians won’t have seen before – we’re determined to create something that we can all be very proud of.”

Each apartment has a private entranceway, mirroring a suburban home. There are large open plan living spaces on corners that maximise the extent of the views with adjacent
2.5m wide useable external terraces.
Bedrooms and bathroom facilities can be accessed from hallways to maintain privacy from the living spaces. Large walk-in robes, laundry rooms and pantries provide the amenities to create a high-end apartment home.
To sum up?
Overall the project’s brief was to create a unique apartment building. Excellent design, generous proportions, quality amenities are all brought together at OPUS on Hutt Street with a sculptured built from unique crafted materials.
We wanted to produce a sought-after residential address for Adelaide.
You’ve worked hard to get here, although it has been gradual progression of working ‘smarter’.
Success hasn’t come by chance; the details really matter. Along the way, you’ve gained knowledge, experience and taste. Now you’ve earned your place.
You know what you want. You know what works and that means being discerning and selective.
You’ve been carefully considering where you might want to live. It’s time for the ‘next stage’ and sensible investing is important. The address is important but so is the environment.
Ceiling height is a good place to start. Yours will not be the ‘minimum’. Liberal 2.7 metre ceilings in Living areas create space and allow air to freely circulate. Ceiling heights to wet areas, laundries, powder rooms, walk-in robes, pantries and some passage areas are at 2.4m. Generously sized floor plans provide space to live. Both are rare offerings in new apartments, are essential to quality living.
Designs need to be generous and intelligent. Entry spaces should create a sense of arrival. Hallways separate utility spaces from living areas. Flow is created. There is no confusion or interruption. And to maximise your living space, floor levels between the indoors and the external terrace are identical; pocketed aluminium door channels are recessed and seamless.
