    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.

Finding an Architect To Work With


Working with an architect can be a daunting prospect, particularly if it is your first project. We want to make everything as easy and transparent as possible, as we know that some of the architecture jargon can get very confusing!

Because of this, we have created an easy to follow Blogs and FAQ’s Pages and also a Youtube Channel which we regularly update.

Architecture fees can be looked upon as an unnecessary cost rather than the value that they can bring, a good architect will use their experience to fully understand your brief, while offering suggestions to give more options.

Architecture Firm Costs


AURA Architecture have a transparent fixed fee structure, which can be viewed online here. This differs with many architects and architecture firms in Oxfordshire, who charge a percentage of the project costs.

We provide detailed quotes are fully itemised which means that you can make an informed decision on which architect that you chose. It also means that you can see how and where your budget is being allocated, maximising your budget to its full capacity will mean that you can get more of the things that you want in your home, however, we never like to see our clients go above the line.

Getting everything laid out from the start means that you will not be left with any unpleasant surprises. AURA is open and transparent and want to work with our clients to maximise the value of the home and meet their desires and needs.

Using 3D imagery is a great way to help visualise your new home. This is one of our projects in London.
