As leading architects for Camden, we can help you with the design process and planning submission all the way through to completion. Over the past 7 years, our Clapham based studio has worked on residential projects across London. Delivering homes for growing families, transforming period properties and increasing returns for property developers.
AURA Architecture has vast experience working on home-owner and property developer’s projects on loft and basement conversions, extensions and new build homes.
Why not check out some of our work? Our recently updated Projects Page has plenty of examples of our previous work.
We have a transparent fixed fee structure, which we publish on the fees page on our website. Most architects in Camden won’t share their prices and will charge a percentage of the overall project costs. Often these fees can skyrocket if you’re looking for premium fixtures and finishes.
AURA provides fully itemised quotes to make an informed decision on which architect you chose. You can see where your budget is being allocated, thus maximising effectiveness.
With everything laid out from the start, you won’t be left with any unpleasant surprises.
We often hear from our clients that speaking to architects is daunting and confusing, as they often use industry terminology, making the process unnecessarily complicated and hard to grasp.
Our Director, Ben Richards, when he set up the company back in 2017, set to solve this issue for homeowners wanting to make improvements to their homes.
That is why we share our Fees on our website, create Blogs and FAQ articles to share industry insights, and have created the 10 Step AURA Process, which is explained via Youtube or can be Downloaded for Free to read anytime.
Our design guide takes you through the architectural design process from start to finish. It sets out all the stages from initial design through to completion and shows you how we can help at each step of the way.
The first step is to contact us using our online enquiry form where you can create a design brief online.
We then look at local policies and planning history and meet with you to explain any constraints you may need to be aware of.
After that, we provide a written fee proposal and help you budget for other costs.
So that you can see how the project will look on completion, we produce three concept designs for you to choose from. These include floor plans, sketches, and can also include 3D images with our premium service.
You may require a planning application, to confirm that designs comply with all local planning regulations. We can complete this for you.
We also prepare all documents and drawings needed to show that the project complies with national Building Regulations.
To ensure the interior and finish of your space has a high-end finish that fully realises your plans, we provide a full Specification of Works covering interior design, more refined finishes and fittings.
We also handle the tender process, ensuring a range of competitive quotes from trusted suppliers for all work and that contracts cover all critical information.
We monitor the build process, resolving any issues that arise and reporting back to you regularly.
At the end of this, the final stage is for you to ENJOY the space we’ve helped you create!
