  • Eco-friendly spacessustainable design is one of the biggest focuses in the architectural world currently. Green spaces, solar panels and thermal efficiency are just some of the ways green architecture can influence the design of an extension. Find out more about green architecture, here.
  • Highlighting original featuresinstead of covering antique features, modern design trends focus on highlighting the interesting features from a propertys history. From ceiling beams and unique fireplaces, to exposed brick walls and industrial windows, the original features of a building accentuate its individual character.


Maximise key family space

We believe that at the heart of each space are the people who use it. At Marraum, our team take the time to understand your story and create a space that fits your family. An extension has endless possibilities, from an office or games room, to a home theatre or family play space.  

Each space can be enhanced by its own signature features from maximising eye-widening views to inspire a home office, to creating stand out focal points in a dining area. We work with you to understand your requirements and bring more to your space, designing intricate details that will make your extension work harder for you.
