About DUNSTANVILLE

For almost a millennium, Dunstanville has been an illustrious Cornish name, originally with links to Warwickshire. Our company was founded when Graham Love moved from Warwickshire to Falmouth, on Cornwall’s south coast, to be inspired by the Cornish landscape and lifestyle.

Cornwall has a rich history of creative arts borne out of the spectacular panoramas and wildlife as well as a wealth of engineering heritage based on mining, shipbuilding, communications and defence. 21st century Falmouth is a thriving creative community with a stream of fresh talent emanating from the University’s world leading spectrum of digital arts courses. The local funding environment has also made the town a crucible for tech start-ups. London Heathrow is a 45 minute flight from Newquay.

Based on Graham and Maria’s international experience, Dunstanville draws on these local resources to provide a fresh perspective on its specialist area, train design. We also seek to broaden into other areas of design including marine transport. Supported by our network of associates, many of them also based in Cornwall, we provide a full range of design services to clients from London to Sydney.
