    Overall great design and exceptional value for money. As a first time consumer of architectural services on what was a large project I can not emphasise enough the value add that we got from Ben, Sophie and the wider Aura team. The effort … More and detail put into the design and specification of works along with significant assistance in project management was commendable. As the project evolved it was crystal clear that we saved a significant amount of time and money as a result of having a comprehensive package and most importantly we got what we wanted on budget. Expectations were exceeded in terms of meeting deadlines. Accommodating design changes and assistance with the planning process was also first rate. I would highly recommend the team and look forward to working with them on the next project.

    Couldn't recommend Ben and his team more. We were in a really tricky position with our building project and Ben navigated us safely out of it. Superb guidance, great technical knowledge and what I really valued the most was the communication. … More Always got back to me promptly which makes a real difference when stress levels are high. Thanks Aura!

Costs of Architects in Islington:


Unlike many architects and architectural designers charging inflated prices in the EC1V area, our fee structure is entirely transparent.

We charge a flat fee of £75 per hour for our services and advise that our full range of services (if used) will be around 8-12% of your total build costs.

Typical architects in Islington base their prices on a percentage of the total build cost, usually charging between 11-15% of the construction value. This pricing structure can lead to higher build costs.

More comprehensive details of our fees are shown online here.


What will my refurbishment or extension cost?


As residential architects this is the most common question we get asked! The answer varies depending on numerous factors, such as the work you’re carrying out, the complexity of the build, the level of finish and more. Still, we can provide an accurate estimation for you; from Barbican to City Road or Gee Street, we have experience of the high standards expected in the Clerkenwell design district!

We’ve written an entire blog that outlines all our estimations for you. It’ll be able to give you our estimates for a variety of works, factors that could affect your budget, professional fees, and price case studies.
