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.

Planning Video for alterations to Budock Village Hall, Cornwall

Type:  Village Hall alterations
Location:  Budock Water, Cornwall
Status:  Full planning application
This short video is to assist with the understanding of this planning application

The proposal seeks to rationalise and improve the flow and configuration of the internal spaces to better suit the changing needs of the myriad of hall users. At lower ground floor level a single storey rear extension introduces a clear, safer entrance for users of the hall, with a functional lobby and accessible WC. The proposed extension leads to a meeting room with kitchenette, storage and double doors opening to the outside at the rear of the building. The addition of glazing brings natural light to the space, creating a more inviting and usable room.

Stairs to ground floor level have been revised and improved to benefit users.

At ground floor level the proposal sees the entrance moved to the south of the west facade opening into an entrance lobby. The relocated kitchen sits at the front of the building linking to the newly created outdoor seating area, and relating internally to the main hall through double doors and a service hatch. WC provisions and new storage flank the hallway leading to the stairs to the lower ground floor. The introduction of additional glazing to the main hall improves natural lighting to the space.
