Things To Consider When Selecting An Architect In Twickenham
Reviews & Awards
When browsing architecture firm websites, it can be challenging to gauge the actual experience you’ll have throughout your project. However, gaining insights from independent reviews by past clients and recognizing architectural accolades can provide a clearer picture.
AURA Architecture boasts an impressive track record with over 16 Google reviews and 12 reviews on Houzz, highlighting the satisfaction of our clients. In 2019, our dedication and expertise were recognized by Build Magazine, as we were honoured with two prestigious awards.
We were voted as the “Most Trusted Residential Architecture Firm” and acknowledged for our exceptional work in the “Best Small Scale Extension and Refurbishment Project.” These accolades serve as a testament to our commitment to delivering outstanding results and exceeding expectations.
Opting for the lowest price when selecting an architecture firm is often not a wise decision. Your home holds significant value, and the architect you choose can greatly impact its resale value.
Moreover, the dissatisfaction of an end result that falls short of your dream home can persist for years, long after any initial cost savings have been forgotten. In Hertfordshire, typical architecture firm fees range from 8% to 16% of the total project cost.
However, at AURA, we believe that charging fees based on a percentage of the project cost does not prioritise our client’s best interests. Such an approach may incentivise architects to include unnecessary and expensive features, rather than focusing on what truly benefits you. Instead, we offer fixed fees that are agreed upon upfront, ensuring transparency and eliminating hidden costs.
To facilitate fee comparisons with other architects, we estimate that our fees will be approximately 8% to 12% of your total build costs when utilizing our comprehensive range of services.

Kitchen Extensions In Twickenham
The kitchen is often regarded as the heart of the home, and rightly so.
Modern homes increasingly blend dining and socialising and relaxing space into the traditional kitchen area.
There is a definite trend towards larger, multi-functional kitchens, and so a kitchen extension is a top desire for many owners of London homeowners, especially those with older or period-style properties, which typically have small kitchens.
Even if you’re the type that prefers peace and quiet while you cook, and don’t want an open-plan style kitchen, there are still more considerations to accommodate in a kitchen design than any other room of the house, so this area deserves the most attention from your chosen architect.
Full Home Refurbishments In Twickenham
Maybe your home interior is getting dated or tired, or maybe you want to incorporate a home office for flexible working, or maybe you just want to better utilise the available space.
Whatever the reason, the creative architects at AURA Architecture will help you to maximise your space, increase natural light levels, make your property more sustainable, and simplify to create an uncluttered and beautiful place to live.
Loft Conversions and Basement Conversions
Where garden space is limited, often the only choice to create more living space is to go up or down.
Whilst many have considered a loft conversion, not everyone realises how a skilled architect can turn a basement into an attractive and functional living area, even introducing natural daylight with lightboxes as shown.
