Designing a house or workspace is about building on the best aspects of space and linking them together. And because this talent runs through our veins, the same had to be true of our name – weaving playfully together sounds and meaning to create something entirely new.
It starts with the Märchen, German folktales traded from one village to the next, kept alive and thriving by word of mouth. These living stories reflect how we as architects put your story together. Through each step in this process, we’re adding another chapter to your tale, to give you a deeper level of experience. So wherever we build, whoever we build for, your space becomes part of a greater story. A story where location, surroundings and landscape become key characters within it – setting the stage for your own Märchen to play out.
Raum in German means ‘space’ – but for us, the name goes further than that. A building is much more than the walls around you, or the roof over your head. Space plays a vital part in the fabric of your day-to-day, and even the environment beyond it. We’re bridging these together, drawing out the best of space to create builds that mean more to you and the landscape around them.
As coincidence would have it, Mär also sounds like the German for sea, from which we gain inspiration everyday with our office right on the waterfront. And because it also echoes the German word for ‘more’, you can be sure that we’re elevating your experience at every turn.
