    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!

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.

Why Choose Us For Your Chiswick Architect Project?

The number one priority at AURA Architecture is to create the property development or changes of your dreams for you to enjoy for years to come.

These are the ‘rules’ that guide our work:

  • Maximising space by clever design.
  • Utilising natural light.
  • Visually pleasing architecture.
  • Within your allocated budget.

With larger than average gardens (for an inner London borough), the scope to extend is greater in Chiswick than in many other areas of London. But even so, you may be surprised how much extra living space our skilled architects can create – it’s courtesy of our numerous completed projects.

Whether you want to design a new residential property from scratch, tastefully extend a Victorian terrace property, or sympathetically refurbish your detached home, our consultative approach will always keep your priorities front of mind.

We also always work to maximise the value of your home when we undertake basement or loft conversions and other projects.

In 2019 we won dual Awards as the ‘Most Trusted Residential Architecture Practice – Greater London’ and ‘Best South West London Small Scale Extension & Home Transformation Project’.

Our Transparent, Fixed Fees


How much will this cost?  With many Chiswick architecture firms, you won’t know exactly until the project is complete.  AURA Architecture believes this needs to change.  We’ve made our architect fees transparent and charge a flat fee of £75 per hour.  Also, we provide a written quotation very early in the process to make you aware of the overall cost.  This fee transparency helps you avoid the risk of escalating costs once the build has started or even abandoned projects.

Our Architectural Process in Chiswick


Undertaking a home renovation can be a stressful experience.  In order to guide you confidently throughout, every project undertaken follows our 10 Step Home Design Process, which is based on the RIBA architect stages.

The process begins with our online enquiry form to create a design brief, through the build process, and all the way on to your home being completed for you to enjoy.


Architects Chiswick


Our 10-step home design guide details each step of the way, and removes the ‘what’s next’ stress from the process.

First, we complete a desktop study which identifies any planning or building constraints imposed by the London Borough of Hounslow Council, who oversee the planning and building control in Chiswick.

Next, one of our experienced AURA team members will meet with you to review and discuss your needs.  After this meeting, we’ll provide you with a fully itemised written quote.  If you decide AURA is a good fit for you, we’ll then provide three design concepts to show how we can make your dream home a reality.

Then we work through the planning application submissions and approval process, along with building control documentation and approval ahead of the build commencing.

At this stage, we can also provide additional advice in relation to interior design, fine fittings, and finishes.

AURA Architecture can then manage the tender process, to assist you in locating a reputable and trustworthy builder, and manage the contracts involved, and monitor the entire project through to successful and stress-free completion.
