Our studio is award-winning and design-led and we specialise in residential architecture with a high-end finish.
We design home extensions, loft conversions, basement conversions, home refurbishments, bespoke new builds, and property conversions.
At Aura Architecture, we live for our core values which are:
We are also transparent when it comes to our fee structure. Unlike many architects and architecture specialists, we want you to know what our service will cost as early as possible.
We charge a flat fee of £75 per hour and advise that our full range of services (if used) will be around 8-12% of your total construction costs.
We offer even more comprehensive details on our fees here.
So, with Aura Architecture you get not only an architecture specialist based locally in Clapham, but also a team you can trust to bring your vision to life and ensure your home is perfectly you.
1 – CONTACT: The first step is for you to make initial contact with us. Create your design brief online using our online enquiry form
2 – RESEARCH: We will then carry out a desktop study of your home so that we understand planning permissions and planning policies for your area.
3 – CONSULTATION: After this, we will meet you for a consultation at your home to discuss your needs. Following this we will provide you with a written quote.
4 – CONCEPT: Once everything is agreed, we will produce three concept designs. This will include floor plans, sketches and, potentially 3D images so you can really visualise everything.
5 – PLANNING PERMISSION: The next step is the planning application (where necessary) and we will act as agents on your behalf. This ensures everything is submitted and processed on time.
6 – BUILDING CONTROL: We will then go on to produce all relevant drawings for Building Regulations and allow them to check our plans for compliance.
We can also utilise our great relationships with Party Wall Surveyors, Structural Engineers, and Mechanical and Electrical Engineers to get you competitive quotes and a reliable service.
7 – DETAILED DESIGN: Once this stage is complete, we will produce a Specification of Works. Also including interior design and finishes, and all other tender documents.
8 – TENDER: One of the most important steps is to help you find the right trusted builder!
9 – SITE MONITORING: If you wish, providing a site monitoring service to ensure all is going to plan throughout the build process.
10 – ENJOY YOUR NEW HOME!
