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.


BSc (Hons) Architectural Design and Technology 

“Clean, contemporary architecture excites me; design that brings in a sense of the outdoors, creating an experience that can be enjoyed every day. 

I’m originally from Cornwall, and studied Architectural Design and Technology at Cardiff Metropolitan, graduating with a high commendation from CIAT and course awards for sustainable design.

I love solving problems - and the possibilities of 3D design and BIM (Building Information Modelling) is a real revolution in the architecture and construction industry, allowing for more creative solutions. It’s great to be a part of a team at the forefront of using these technologies to efficiently design and construct spaces that really work for our clients.

Now it’s great to be back in Cornwall, putting my learning into practice at Marraum. I’m also a big foodie and this corner of the UK is certainly a great place to be for that. I also enjoy football, surfing, cycling and yoga and the culture at work really allows me to pursue these passions to the full — work hard, play hard!”
