A “velkommen hjem” is in order for Bjarke Ingels. (For all you non-Danish speakers, that means welcome home.)

The starchitect bought a $3.9 million apartment in Dumbo.

Ingels recently revealed his design for the much-anticipated 2 World Trade Center and is also the man behind the Durst Organization’s tetrahedron-shaped behemoth on the Far West Side. Now, he’s the proud owner of a three-bedroom duplex at 205 Water Street, according to the New York Daily News. The pad comes with 2,344 square feet of private outdoor space.

Douglas Elliman’s Oren and Tal Alexander represented Ingels.

From his new home, he’ll be able to keep tabs on his biggest new project. “I’ll be able to see 2 World Trade Center rising on the skyline,” he told the newspaper. House music producer Victor Calderone and his wife Athena Calderone previously owned the unit, according to the Daily News.
