Extended ambitions

Reimagining the layout of a unique space


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.

A beautiful Quarry House with underground living areas, situated in a Conservation Area and overlooking Falmouth on the water’s edge.
Type:  Full house renovation 
Location:  Flushing, Cornwall
Status:  Complete
Contractor:  Clark Frost Construction


With an initial brief to remove and raise this delightful home’s roof, our project began to expand as we found creative ways to utilise Quarry House’s space – changing the layout to work better for the clients, whilst retaining the original ridge line of the property.

Quarry House is a unique home overlooking Falmouth Harbour, which is part underground and, naturally, bedrooms have been positioned in the darker areas, on the ground floor. We were careful to preserve the rich heritage of the landscape, ensuring the building retained a dormer bungalow appearance and had no negative impact on surrounding listed buildings.

“I liked the way there appeared to be no hierarchy within your team and that makes it easier for me as a customer to speak to anyone at any time and get a reliable well informed response.“



Our client, Paul, has been amazing to work with on this project, taking full advance of our 3D and virtual reality offering to enhance the process and visualise the finished property. Quarry House's 3D plans were submitted successfully to neighbours and the Parish Council, with neighbours even giving their own letters of support to the project as a result – creating an extremely positive environment that only added to the client’s excitement.
