  • 1- START – Your journey begins by creating a design brief online using our online enquiry form
  • 2 – RESEARCH – The next stage sees us carry out a desktop study of your home in order to understand planning permission restrictions and Merton Council planning policies for your specific area of Wimbledon.
  • 3 – CONSULTATION – Once we have done this, we meet you for a consultation at your home in Wimbledon, where we discuss your needs and provide you with a written quote.
  • 4 – CONCEPTS – If you accept the quote, we produce three concept designs including floor plans, sketches and, potentially 3D images, to help you to visualise the designs.

  • 5 – PLANNING – After this, the next step is to submit the planning application to Merton Council (where necessary). We can act as agents on your behalf, ensuring everything is submitted and processed on time.
  • 6 – BUILDING CONTROL – We can also produce all relevant drawings required for Building Regulations and make these available so that our plans can be checked an approved for compliance.
  • 7 – DETAILED DESIGN – Amongst the additional services we provide, we produce a Specification of Works
    • We use our established relationships with Party Wall Surveyors, Structural Engineers, and Mechanical and Electrical Engineers to ensure you are getting competitive quotes and a reliable service.
  • 8 – TENDER – We manage the tender process and ensure contracts for all work is comprehensive and transparent, showing what’s covered, when it will be completed and how much you can expect to pay.
  • 9 – SITE MONITORING – Finally, we can monitor the completion of the work for you, with regular site visits and reports as well as resolving any issues or potential problems to ensure the work is on target and as specified.
At the end of this, the final stage is for you to ENJOY the space we’ve helped you create!
 

Values and Vision of what we believe you should get from all architects in Wimbledon

 

Customers who chose Aura Homes benefit from Our 5 Core Values which are:

  • Honesty and integrity
  • Attention to detail
  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Understanding and respecting people

 

These translate into how we approach residential architecture in Wimbledon. Our vision is to:

  • Maximise  space and ensure it’s tailored to the needs of the people who use it
  • Create spaces where natural light is used to contribute to people’s sense of wellbeing in their home
  • Create clean, simple designs, with splashes of colour and texture
  • Think sustainably by creating energy efficient buildings

 

With this in mind, all of our designs embody this Vision and Values

Fees for architects in Wimbledon:

Unlike many architects and architecture specialists in Wimbledon, our fee structure is transparent.

We charge a fixed fee for our services.  If you ask us to provide the full range of services set out in our design guide, you can expect the cost to be around 8-12% of your total costs for the build.

Typical architects charge between 11-15% of the construction value.  This incentivises other Wimbledon architects to inflate costs, instead of designing a home in line with your priorities and budget.

More comprehensive details of our fees are available here.

Wimbledon and Merton Planning

Wimbledon lies within the Merton Borough Council planning area, and whilst planners can be very restrictive at times, it is generally easier to get planning in Wimbledon than some nearby areas like Richmond.  Ease of obtaining planning permission for your extension can vary widely within small areas of Wimbledon, however, and the West Wimbledon Conservation Area is particularly challenging.

AURA Architecture have developed an in-depth local knowledge of planning in Wimbledon, and will work on your behalf to obtain the planning you need, as well as carefully designing your home refurbishment to pre-empt potential issues before they arise.  AURA will prepare the planning application drawings, liaise with Merton Borough Council on your behalf, and generally save you hours of time and remove the hassle and frustration from the process.

Our Wimbledon Planning Architect Services include:

  • Planning Application Drawings (including Plans, Sections, Elevations etc.)
  • Retrospective Planning
  • Advice on Permitted Development
  • Building Regulation Drawings for Building Control
  • 3D Virtual Reality Tour
  • Interior Design
  • Spatial Planning and Layout
  • Feasibility Consultancy
