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.

Maximise the space and views available and bring more natural light into the property by extending into the roof. This will provide a family bathroom, two double bedrooms and a first floor sitting room and enable a complete redesign of the ground floor. By removing the storm porch and long corridor the ground floor space can be opened up to provide a more user-friendly open plan reception/kitchen/dining room area, create a study/office, utility room and ground floor guest suite. The design will improve the overall thermal quality and the external aesthetics, provide a more functional space suitable for modern family living with all reception areas and bedrooms (with the exception of the ground floor guest room) enjoying the views. Outside the store rooms in the rear courtyard will be removed to create a more attractive useable entertaining space.
