From our main offices in the Clapham part of Lambeth, we are conveniently located to manage residential housing projects across Lambeth and its adjoining boroughs.
We enjoy established working relationships with the planning and building control teams in Lambeth, Wandsworth and Southwark Borough Councils, and along with our in-depth knowledge of housing requirements across the area, we are well placed to obtain the planning permission you need, however ambitious your home renovation project may be.
Our architects share your enthusiasm for imaginative extensions, loft conversions, basement conversions and new builds. We will consider the existing structure of your home and surrounding property types, and then design a spacious, energy-efficient extension or conversion, tailored to your exact needs and optimised to add value to the property.
Home renovations are notorious for running over-budget, but when you are at the architectural design stage our fixed-fee structure will give you peace of mind.
Our costs cover what we do for you, in contrast to many other architects in Lambeth who charge a percentage of the total project cost (so they benefit at your expense if the project goes over budget).
As winners of a ‘Most Trusted Architecture Firm’ award in 2019, it perhaps goes without saying that our costs are laid out at the beginning on a transparent, fully itemised quotation, with no hidden extras.
For an in-depth overview of our fee structures, along with indications of average costs from 3rd-party consultants, please view our fees page, contact our team to discuss, or submit your brief online to get started.
Lambeth is a largely residential borough in South West London on the south bank of the River Thames, with its municipal centre in Brixton and large shopping districts in Streatham, Brixton, Vauxhall, Clapham and West Norwood. Other neighbourhoods encompassed by Lambeth are Gipsy Hill, Herne Hill, Kennington, Oval, Stockwell and Tulse Hill. As is the case with many London boroughs, some Lambeth areas are shared with two or more boroughs; Clapham with Wandsworth and Kennington with Southwark.
Lambeth is home to several cultural attractions, including Lambeth Palace, the South Bank arts complex, the former Oval Cricket ground, the Grade II Brockwell Park and Lido, the Imperial War Museum, the London Aquarium, and the London Eye. It is a highly cosmopolitan borough, with Afro-Caribbean, African, South Asian, and Chinese communities making up one-third of the population.
By choosing a Lambeth based architecture firm like AURA who know the area intimately, you can be assured that your house extension or renovation will be designed to blend with your neighbourhood, and you stand the best chance of obtaining planning permission quickly too.
