If you’ve been following the controversy surrounding the American Folk Art Museum and its demolition by MoMA, you know of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects, the husband-and-wife firm who designed the now-razed, but much-loved structure. In some less disparaging news, city records released today show that the couple has scooped up a $1,075,000 million co-op at the iconic Hotel des Artistes in Lincoln Square. Unit 415 is a one-bedroom duplex, and they already own unit 414, which they bought in 2008 for $1.6 million, so we can only assume they plan to work their architectural magic and combine the two adjacent apartments.

Hotel des Artistes, 1 West 67th Street

The charming home was marketed as a perfect pied-a-terre, but in this case it’s likely going to become part of a much larger home. The duplex has southern exposures, beamed ceilings, an original staircase, solid oak doors, and hardwood floors — the perfect canvas for Williams and Tsien to work with.
