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

Planning video for an extension in Falmouth

Type:  Layout reconfigurations and extensions within Falmouths Conservation Area 
Location: Falmouth, Cornwall
Status:  Householder 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, extending to accommodate additional space requirements, to better suit the needs and lifestyle of the occupants. There is a focus on creating strong relationships between indoor and outdoor spaces and ensuring ease of movement between these.

Ground floor level sees the creation of an open-plan kitchen/dining/living space to the south of the property. A proposed roof-light to this ground floor living area seeks to bring significantly more natural light into the space. The bifold doors of the living area link directly to the rear garden and an area of hard landscaping, to be utilised as an outdoor living area. The proposed rear sitting room also opens onto this outdoor area. The reconfiguration of the layout allows for a bedroom and shower room to be accommodated on the ground floor.

At first floor level the proposed design includes an additional bedroom to the rear of the property, and a study to the front which takes advantage of a well naturally lit space and views to the ocean. The repositioning of the staircase to a more central location within the home allows for the bathroom serving the three first floor bedrooms to be relocated to the rear extension.
