    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!

    Aura Homes is a highly professional firm of architects that always have the clients best interests at hart. The quality of their plans and drawings is superb and their turn-around when making amendments well within expected timelines. … More For bespoke projects, their research and recommendations (both in terms of quality and costs) is superb.

Making Everything Transparent


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 home.

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.

What we love about Kingston upon Thames


  • The beautiful Victorian homes located all over the Borough, ranging from the listed Victorian Villa’s located around Fairfield to the area of Coombe which hosts some of London’s most expensive homes. We love working on period properties and adapting them to suit that homeowners requirements.

  • Being in London, but having the beauty of some of London’s finest outdoor areas on your doorstep. The Thames, Bushy Park, Richmond Park and so on.


  • The vibrant town centre! Having access to a great choice of pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops and the new Town House Library next to the University.
