KUDHVA means “Hideout” in the Cornish dialect.
There are times in your life when really exciting things happen. I think its happening right now. I saw a piece of land last year 1 mile for Trebawith Strand a surf break and gorgeous inhabited cove in North Cornwall. It was an long abandoned Slate Quarry with x 2 water sources and a Grade 11 listed engine house. PURE MAGIC. With 180 degree views it looks over the sea, gull rock (which looks like a Baboons head rising from the sea) and Kirin Island from the famous Five book. ITS WILD.
I’ve never been to a place thats invited that in me so much. Maybe because it’s a man made environment thats grown over. I’ve been developing the concept with Architect BEN HUGGINS over the last year. We have conceived 2 man and 4 man KUDHVA a reception building with boutique shop and juice bar – a pop up restaurant on a yearly cycle with guest chefs, architect in residence and an Architecture Summer school just for starters.
There will be spots located around the site where you KUD (could) wild swim in the old resevoir, do yoga in a temple, sunbathe on a tree hammock courtesy of TENTSILE , read a book in the forest library on well being or architecture, draw or paint a sea landscape on a hidden 9 foot tall slate eisel. All subtle well designed interventions to raise your happiness levels and expand your mind. Part of the ongoing BE GOLDEN MOVEMENT.(#begoldenmovement). I keep the unopened flower in my heart that my boys will have a creative and fruitful life if I lead them into the KUDHVA.
