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.

Cornwall Council planning application

Renovation in Mawgan

Type:  Full house renovation and extension
Location:  St Mawgan, Cornwall
Status:  Householder planning application

The proposed design seeks to define its principal entrance by relocating the main door to the South elevation to establish a more practical entrance lobby that opens into the core of the house. From there, the proposal flips the key living spaces, and opens into a new family sitting room, and home office beyond, with visual links through to the new open-plan kitchen/dining room that opens out onto the terrace and garden. An integral consideration was to be able to separate these different 'zones' from each other whilst maintaining an 'open' feel to the ground floor. This is achieved through the use of hidden pocket doors that can remain open the majority of the time. These changes and the creation of intimate spaces such as 'coffee corner' enhance these key living spaces dramatically.
