AURA are a London Architecture Firm, with a wealth of experience in the Wimbledon area, having managed several residential architecture projects in Wimbledon recently.
To get a feel for the level of expertise our architects and home designers have to offer, please browse our residential architecture projects or our property developer projects. Or view our independent 3rd party reviews on Google or Houzz.
In 2019, we were voted as the “Most Trusted Residential Architecture Firm, Greater London” by Build Magazine.
Also in 2019, our Wimbledon project on Cromwell Road was voted “Best South West London Small Scale Extension & Home Transformation Project”.
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.
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.
At the end of this, the final stage is for you to ENJOY the space we’ve helped you create!
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.
