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 create a betterment to the internal living space.

Within the front two storey extension, works will be undertaken to allow both the living room and bedroom increased floor space and views to the sea, improving connection with the outdoors visually. At ground floor, the proposal retains direct access onto the landscaped garden from the living area. At first floor, connection with the outdoors is strengthened via a more functional balcony space. The proposal follows the proportions of the existing two storey bay window found mirrored across the front elevation.

At the rear of the property, the existing rear conservatory is currently in a poor condition and lets water in. A replacement solid roof improves the thermally efficient of the garden room and makes the room more usable.
