Architects Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio buy an unassuming Village co-op

The Diller Scofidio Renfro partners have purchased within walking distance of the firm

For being two of the most well-regarded architects of their time, Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio of Diller Scofidio Renfro sure have inconspicuous personal taste. The architect, and life, partners just picked up a high-floor co-op on East 9th Street, near to their firm’s Cooper Square offices, for $1.7 million—and oh how unassuming it is.

The two-bedroom co-op’s most standout feature is its blue sky views, followed by its recently updated kitchen. How the architects of MoMA’s renovation will redesign their apartment remains to be seen, of course, but they at least have something to work with: The co-op’s two bedrooms are divided by the relatively spacious living/dining area. One drawback: the second bedroom doesn’t have access to the apartment’s full bathroom, found off of the master. Might we suggest a second-bedroom study?

The apartment has six closets in total, and is possessing of a fair amount of charm. It also counts itself as a penthouse, being on the building’s top residential floor. Guess we’ll have to wait until the duo sell the place to see their updates—but we think it’ll be worth it.
