We are delighted to make the front page of this weekend's @guardian Travel with the Off-Grid Pub which we designed and built in 2018. Commissioned by @carlsberguk, the Danish Cabin was the latest in a series of off-grid architectural experiments at @kudhva.

'Set in a remote location on the wild North Coast of Cornwall, New British Design’s back to basics bunk house is an off-grid pub/woodland retreat for up to 6 people. Taking the shape and form of it from the traditional Cornish Engine House, the pub design uses a primary palette of wood and tin to create a light weight, scaled down interpretation of the original stone Engine House situated nearby. '

With our roots in craft and making the studio both designed and got hands on with the build of the Off-Grid Pub, leading the construction of the project on site in the former quarry at Kudhva, A film crew was on hand to record much of the construction process for a series of short films for Carlsberg's 'Build the Danish Way' marketing campaign. Some behind-the-scenes pictures of the summer build are posted below.
