The 1960s-era Provincetown of Philip Cozzi’s youth was home to a Who’s Who of Cape Cod’s intellectual glitterati: Robert Motherwell, Norman Mailer, and other artists attracted by the close-knit society that thrived in America’s oldest creative colony.
Drawn back by the same sense of community, Philip and his wife, Kristin Hein, recently bought the Old Homestead, a historic captain’s home and guest house in the town’s East End. After restoring the landmark house, the couple, who make up the design duo Hein+Cozzi, overhauled the garden.
“The overall feel of the garden was generated from my memories of classic P-town gardens of the sixties and seventies,” Philip says. “These gardens were dominated by greenery, and had wonderful walkways and secret spaces. There was always something unexpected around the corner.” Join us for a tour:
