The Parkside Wimbledon House ($CALL) was built in 1968 by Richard Rogers as a home for his parents. It revolutionized the idea of bringing the outdoors inside. Parkside features floor to ceiling windows throughout which creates an open plan that brings the garden inside. The house was recently renovated by Gumuchdjian Architects in order to house two Harvard fellows. Three-quarters of the building's frame was replaced, all of the joineries was refurbished, and the garden was completely redesigned. Through it all the property still holds on to its light and airy feel.

I love it when I see young kids looking to start their first business. Tim Scharrer is a seventeen year old from Sheboygan, WI. He and his partner have started a home grown business to create longboards. NS Longboards ($270) are hand crafted and beautifully made. They need help to purchase larger quantities of materials and equipment needed for production. For your money you get their 39" NS Freedride longboard. It features a lock-in concave, and double kick tails. It's light and stiff, but also provides great stability. So if your into long-boarding check out their Kickstarter today.
