From the glimmer of an idea to the stroke of a pencil, the first turn of a door handle to the flickering of a smile across a face, at Marraum we bring more to your space – and take your story beyond its walls.

And we begin with you. Because at the heart of each architecture project – studio spaces, private loft conversions, commercial builds or building that dream home – are the people who use it.

They’re the yawns that stretch to eye-widening views in the morning. They’re the feet feeling cool concrete underfoot. They’re the eyes looking for inspiration at their desks. And the shoulders that hunker down in the evening. These are the people whose surroundings bring more to each and every experience.

With years of architecture and design experience in both Cornwall and further afield – paired with aesthetic drive, strong ethics and constant curiosity – we know how to make space work harder for you.So from beginning, middle and end – discover how you can bring your own story of space to life.


BA (Hons) Fine Art

"Creating a culture where people matter and want to work – that’s what I really care about. That and moving forwards, striving to improve, getting things done.

Studying a Fine Art degree I had to be completely self-motivated – there’s no right or wrong and it’s up to you which route you choose. That was definitely good training for the focus you need to run a business. From HR and policies to marketing, finances and implementing new CRM systems, I’m responsible for pretty much everything outside of our project-work. So it may sound like a cliché, but no two days are ever the same.

Living through two home renovation projects myself definitely helps me to empathise with our clients on both a financial and a personal level. I know how it feels to have a child who’s just learning to walk living through a building project — and I know the budgetary strains of a project from going through that first-hand. I also experience the difference that great design makes to my life every day, and that’s something I’m always grateful for."
