Architects Devon Exeter Plymouth South Hams Cornwall RIBA Chartered Practice Architecture Off Grid Design Cabin Hideout Larch Wild

Kudhva, meaning hideout in Cornish, are a series of prototype wilderness cabins situated in a dis-used quarry on the north coast of Cornwall. The project forms part of a wider long-term strategy for creative reuse of the quarry. The Kudhva are a physical manifestation of the client’s approach to natural living. The cabins are made predominately from wood, chosen to act as a lightweight counter to the site’s industrial past. The natural habitat is ecologically rich, therefore the cabins have been designed to touch lightly on the land. The cabins have been designed to be totally off-grid and are temporary structures that can be moved around the site or removed in years to come.
