A Legendary Provincetown Artist’s Home, Updated for Modern Life

If you’ve spent time in Provincetown in the last few decades, you know about Ciro Cozzi. An artist, bon vivant, and c0-owner of Ciro & Sal’s Restaurant, he was a beloved figure in town (when he died in 2013, Anthony Bourdain tweeted “RIP Ciro Cozzi, my first real boss of bosses in long ago Provincetown, Mass.”). For years he lived with his family in a rambling home consisting of three structures cobbled together, the front a “float-over” from Long Point, a mid 19th century section, and a grand Colonial Revival addition. When a local couple bought the house after Ciro’s death, his…

Holiday Gift Guide 2019: 11 Cookbooks to Wrap and Give

Left to my own devices, I tend to have a cheese plate and wine for dinner. Even so, cookbooks line my bookshelves, and I like to get into bed and page through one at night like I would a novel. This year’s selection of cookery books, culled from the year’s best-of lists and our very own wish lists, are every bit as beautiful as they are filled with excellent recipes. There’s also a thread here we can get behind: sumptuous, good food that’s also simple and stress-free, laid-back enough for weeknights—and made to share with whoever stops by, too. And, we…

Brothers Andrew and Adam Mariani are fourth generation California farmers who, after spending time as vineyard hands in Europe, returned to their hometown and bought an old vineyard in the foothills of Sonoma, California, to start their own winery, Scribe. The early 1900s hacienda was in need of a complete overhaul (it had partially burned down in a fire), so working with architect David Darling of San Francisco firm Aidlin Darling, they restored the interiors without losing the essential character of the place. The plan included a new kitchen—the only room where they had to start from scratch—for Scribe’s food program. “The kitchen was…

A Look at Low Carbon Homes

“If you are building a house in 2019, all of the embodied energy gets burned this year, which means that all of the carbon associated with that embodied energy is going into the atmosphere this year.”—Martin Holladay Still abuzz after our recent Building Science Summit, I’ve recommitted to a rallying cry I haven’t sounded loud enough. I’m not alone in that department. Though the dialogue around embodied carbon is starting to attract more attention, the green building community is still primarily focused on the operations-related environmental impacts of our houses, so efforts are centered around energy efficiency over the carbon…
