AURA are award-winning architects located in London and understand both the culture and the historic heritage of Oxfordshire and its unique suburban architecture. We want to discuss your desires for a quality home and make them a reality for you while adding value to your investments.
From ideas, designs, planning applications and project management through to completion of extensions, loft conversions, home offices and cottage conversions, our designs are energy-efficient with clean lines and simple designs, filled with natural light and sympathetic to the surroundings.
We advise homeowners and property developers from Chipping Norton to Henley On Thames and assist them with optimising layouts to maximise the enjoyment of your property and a good return on investment.
AURA Architecture specialises in residential projects for extensions, loft conversions and refurbishments, see more about us in the video to the left.
We have vast experience working with homeowners and on property developers’ projects in the Home Counties and have earned BUILD Magazine’s accolade for the Most Trusted Residential Architecture Practice for our Cromwell Road project. Our customer reviews on Google (4.9/5 average rating) and Houzz (5/5 rating) tell a story of their own.
Because of the mix of rural and city architecture reflecting ancient and modern history, the University of Oxford culture, biotech, the Ridge Way and the Cotswolds we deploy a sensitive approach to designs for clients to reflect the area’s heritage and add real current and future value to your home.

Working with an architect can be a formidable sounding idea, particularly if it’s the first time you have ventured on such a project. We want to ensure that your dealings with us are as simple and as clear as possible – we understand that the architecture lingo can get a little confusing!
Architecture fees can be looked upon as an excessive expense rather than the value that they can bring. A good architect will use their knowledge to fully grasp your brief, while presenting recommendations to open up more possibilities.
We have a transparent, fixed fee structure, which differs from many architects in Oxfordshire who will generally charge a percentage of the project costs.
All the quotes that we provide are fully itemised, allowing you to make an informed decision on which architect you decide to use. It also means that you can see how and where your budget is assigned. Boosting your budget to its full capacity will allow you to achieve more of the items you would want in your new home. However, we never like to see our clients go above their budget!
We thoroughly endorse getting all elements clearly laid out from the start of the project to ensure that you will not be left with any unpleasant surprises. We are open and transparent and want to work with our clients to maximise the value of their homes while meeting their specific desires and needs.
We loathe unpleasant surprises which is why our fees are clear and transparent, and we carefully detail your budget for each step of the process.
NOTE: We do not currently work on projects with a contract value that is less than £150,000.
