Ismael Leyva Architects, New York, NY, US, Job Captain

It was great experience to be a part of Executive Architects' team for Zaha Hadid's first commission in New York - a 21 storey High-end Residential Condominium adjacent to High Line Park. It started back in 2013 which is under construction now by Related Companies. The facade is finally getting wrapped up as seen in the pictures below which seemed the hardest of all incorporating it into design at that time, also binding it into glass facade that wrapped the interior spaces seamlessly. The idea of curves continued inside with its walls and ceilings which added to the complexity trying to hide all the MEP and ultra-modern features like automated blinds, heated floors and programmed scene lighting.
As a Job Captain I was responsible for developing Project Documents starting from SD, DD to 100% CD phase including feasibility studies, units' layouts for 2 BR+2.5 BA to 5 BR+6.5 BA with amenities, preparing AG (Attorney General) Plans, detailed Bathroom and Kitchen drawings package and interior packages. Please see below some of the works we performed as a team of 4 to 5 core members.
