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.

Renovation in Flushing

Type:  Full house renovation 
Location:  Flushing, Cornwall
Status:  Householder planning application 
This short video is to assist with the understanding of this planning application

This property makes little of its position adjacent to the waterfront at Flushing. On the ground floor the existing layout creates a dark space towards the back wall and mainly used for utilities. The living and sleeping spaces are predominantly at first floor, which isolates the garden from the living accommodation. The layout prevents the enjoyment of the secluded garden from the family spaces. On the second floor the converted roof space with its structural timbers and hipped roof significantly compromises the layout and reduces the available floor space.

By re-allocating the individual spaces and re-ordering the layout, the property can make full use of the site and location. On the first floor the family spaces are arranged to allow views out towards Carrick Roads and Falmouth as well as into the garden and the inclusion of an external balcony provides a physical connection with the garden. On the ground floor the re-arranged layout gives garden access to two bedrooms as well as a bootroom and an integral store/workshop. By replacing the cut roof construction with room in the roof trusses and forming new gables and dormers it will be possible to form two bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor.
