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.

The proposed layout looks to remove and replace with larger footprint, the single storey range to the rear of the property. As part of this works it will see the removal of part of the existing kitchen south facing wall which currently connects as a corridor to the existing range. These works are to take place to the in areas where the most recent construction has taken place, as is evident with the construction techniques used - block built. The alterations and additions will allow for a new living room and connected dining room/kitchen. A further study and bedroom are also proposed towards the end of the range.

Further layout changes include forming a new front door within the location of an existing window and a new slated porch over this. At present, on arrival to the house form the carpark, there is no apparent ‘front’ door.
