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 video

Planning Video for a renovation in Newquay, Cornwall

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

The proposal is a property that has evolved over time, the resultant layout is somewhat convoluted, disconnected, and comprised. It fails to make use of its position with enviable views. This proposal aims to redress this by remodelling the layout whilst only adding a small amount to the phsyical building footprint.
The proposed layout will group bedrooms and ancillary accommodation on the ground floor, and place the Living/dining and Kitchen areas on the first floor.

The remodelling will include a new roof construction that does not increase above the existing ridge line whilst adding to the available floor area. Materials have been chosen to update the appearance of the property.
