    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.

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

Our Vision is to:


  • Maximise your space, and ensure it’s tailored to your needs

  • Think sustainably, creating energy-efficient buildings

A Comprehensive Package for Wimbledon


Our clients are typically time-poor, needing more space for growing families, and simply want someone to handle the whole project in an efficient and expert manner.

We remove the stress from the home improvement process, with a full range of architect services.

After the design stage, our site monitoring and post-completion checks take care of every detail for you.

We work with Merton Borough Council on your behalf to get planning permission, including drawing up plans and submitting them.

We have experience with house extensions, loft conversions, basement conversions, home refurbishments, new-build developments, in many areas of Wimbledon – ask our architects for advice on the best options to improve your home.

Architect Fees in Wimbledon:


Unlike many architecture firms 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 on our fees are available here.

  • 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

  • 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!

Wimbledon Residential Planning


Wimbledon lies within the Merton Borough Council planning area. While planners here 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 preempt potential issues before they arise.  AURA’s Wimbledon architect specialists will prepare the planning application drawings, liaise with Merton Borough Council on your behalf, and generally save you hours and remove the hassle and frustration from the process.


Our Planning 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
