The Grand Opera Complex was designed to be a part of the urban development of the capital city's northeastern districts. The project's goal was to create residential complexes that would complement the architectural and spatial composition of the city, close to the "Astana Opera" building and the development of Turan Avenue. To achieve this, the architects of INK Architects sought an architectural concept that combined classical Italian city palaces and American architectural school rationalism.

The plot's irregular shape determined the complex's layout, including eight multi-story buildings, pedestrian and highway entrances, and children's and sports grounds. The buildings were constructed from monolithic reinforced concrete, and the infrastructure and landscape design were carefully crafted. The walls were decorated with modern materials such as beige stone-like hanging panels, and gray and brown clinker tones, creating a stylish and elegant look.

The residential complex is located in the cultural center of Astana, close to the State Opera and Ballet Theater, giving it its name. The eight blocks of the complex form a rhythmic line that reflects the modern style of the Chicago architecture school. The facades of the Grand Opera complex have a clear structure with expressive details and textures, creating a unique element that blends in perfectly with the surrounding architecture.

In the center of the complex is a spacious courtyard, which provides residents with maximum safety and privacy. Apartments have been designed with spacious and bright layouts for the utmost comfort. A range of shops is added convenience on the first two floors of the complex. Overall, the Grand Opera Complex is a beautiful and sophisticated addition to the area that will surely add to the city's charm.
