With a smooth and attentive process that looked beyond what the brief presented, this project has experienced a seamless design and planning process so far. Currently at the stage of sourcing contractors’ quotes, the couple, alongside the Märraum team are looking forward to the next phase of the project when the building work gets underway.
“We were looking for a practice that would have a fresh contemporary perspective, but would acknowledge the existing strengths of the house and see ways of building on it. Budget was an important factor – we needed someone who would be realistic as well as innovative with their proposals.More importantly, we were looking for someone we could work with – who’d be open to our ideas but would also know when to steer us away from things and make alternative suggestions. What impressed us about Märraum is that after walking around the house, Adam gave us some suggestions of how the house might be easily improved at a fairly minimal cost – which was not part of the original brief. It was the combination of good ideas with practical orientation and sensitivity to budget, that had us sold that day. We also really liked him and felt that Märraum would be a good team to work with.”– Tony and Shona Mullen
