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.

Proposed renovations and extensions to the existing dwelling and village shop. The design seeks to formalise the principal domestic entrance with minimal impact to the existing cottage. This has been achieved by creating a functioning entrance hall with ample amounts of storage and a WC/shower room to serve both the downstairs and guest bedroom. The stairs have been relocated to provide a more practical arrangement above. Beyond, the proposed scheme creates a new open-plan kitchen/dining/living room to improve the flow between the principal living spaces and to establish an open-plan style of living that connects the inside with the garden. A hidden door within the floor-to-ceiling kitchen cabinets leads to a modest utility room with a lockable door that provides direct internal access to the village shop.
