    A noteworthy architect’s renovation can lend a certain cachet to a New York City apartment. If the architect in question called the residence home, so much the better. That’s the case with a duplex condominium in Tribeca of the architect and urban planner Vishaan Chakrabarti, which recently sold for $5.7 million, according to city records filed today.

    Chakrabarti — whose latest post is a partnership at SHoP Architects, the firm that designed the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards, among other high-profile projects — put his architectural chops to use on his own home, combining two units at 200 Chambers Street into a 3,250-square-foot duplex apartment.
