Business Week is on the lookout for photos of interesting home-based businesses. Mildly insultingly they say they want to hear from members of the "pajama workforce" and are asking them to send in a brief description of their workspace along with one digital image. They will "feature a selection of outstanding work spaces in an upcoming special report in photo-essay format and ask readers to vote on their favorites".

When we moved her 47 months ago (I can't believe it's been that long, it seems like yesterday) we took a look at the property and pronounced it perfect "We don't have to do a thing here", The Guy said, "Except take down those trees a foot away from the [...]

Dima Bilan of Russia was voted the winner. My friends Craig and Andy correctly picked it. (Craig, amazingly enough, did so before the competition itself, based on performance order and political grounds). Andy, at least, is a professional musician so he [...]

Publisher’s Weekly—the book industry’s most influential magazine—gives Almost Green a very positive review in tomorrow’s edition. Key adjectives are “compelling,” “as irreverent as is it deeply informative,” “endearing,” and “caustically comic.” The 200-word ditty concludes that the book holds “real universal appeal.” I’m psyched on this. The major audience for PW is the bookseller who wants a [...]

Rooftop shed in Manhattan

It doesn't look like it from this angle, but according to Joseph Giovannini in Architectural Digest , this penthouse/retreat pictured above was originally a "humble, metal-clad storage shed that anyone else would have called a teardown" before it was turned into something very nice indeed by Robert A.M. Stern . As Giovannini says: "Stern is a busy man leading three professional lives—architect, historian and dean of Yale’s architecture school—and in his practice, he found that his time and concentration were being nibbled away as associates approached him in his office asking him for “just a minute.” Stern needed a quiet place for working with two writing colleagues as well as a getaway of his own....“I wanted to create a magic relationship between inside and outside, with gigantic doors that folded open to an outside deck on the same level,” he says." I particularly like this final quote from the piece from Stern. “People know that if they’re to come up here to the shed, it has to be a crisis. It’s a great advantage to be a little hard to get to.” The article is well worth a browse. Photography by Peter Aaron/Esto and courtesy Robert A. M. Stern Architects
