Together with Koto, The Point have created a design-led eco-cabin retreat, perfect for families to be closer to the wild Cornish nature and fresh sea air.
Koto’s cutting-edge design, Darren Hawkes’ award-winning landscaping, and the stunning setting of The Point are being merged in an ambitious project, forming a pioneering eco-extension to the existing holiday facilities at The Point.
In partnership with Darren Hawkes Landscapes, Darren has over 20 years experience working in the landscaping industry. He has won a number of gold medals at RHS Chelsea Flower Show and continues to be involved with the Show as an RHS judge.
Spring 2023 sees the launch of 17 Koto cabins designed exclusively for The Point. The beautifully crafted luxury cabins are between 115 – 119m2 and come in two 3 bed designs. Each cabin will be delivered and installed and comes with a curated furniture package.
Koto has designed the cabins to sit sympathetically within the long grasses and wildflowers in harmony with the verdant landscape. Primarily constructed from timber and glass, each Koto cabin has its own secluded courtyard space, encouraging users to step out and embrace the beautiful views whilst offering shelter from the Cornish elements.
The black charred timber cladding of the cabins blends seamlessly into the Cornish landscape. Each cabin offers floor to ceiling glazing and large sliding doors that open onto the terrace, dissolving boundaries between outside and in.
Within the minimal interior, the soft and muted palette does not distract from the views but emphasizes the picturesque landscape and coastline. While the main living space is open plan, the bedrooms and bathrooms are designed to be more tucked away from the main of the living area, offering a space to retreat.
The Koto design team will work with you to choose your interiors and furniture to ensure your dream coastal cabin is delivered to your specifications, ready to plug and play. The Point team will look after the surrounding communal areas meaning there is no need to worry about gardening maintenance.
Sustainability is at the core of this development. A key focus of this design is building the cabins with nature to protect the environment and to encourage biophilic living; a connectedness between people and the natural world.
Large areas of rewilding will set the scene of the new subtle and natural escapes, with wildlife corridors and wildflower margins paving the way for guests. Our efforts to rewild the golf course is already well underway including the addition of bug hotels and the planting of fescue grasses in expansive areas.
