Aura House

Fifty new homes, retail space and community use area are part of this exceptional addition to Balham, South London.

Aura House

The 5-storey design by our architects evolved through consultation with the London Borough of Wandsworth, local residents, businesses and local community groups.

The resulting designs are simple and interesting façades, which complement the rhythm of the street scene opposite and integrates within the local environment.

Sustainable features include a living roof to encourage biodiversity. Hunters were commissioned by Viridian Housing and Higgins Construction to develop Viridian’s former office block (Aura House) and the adjacent petrol station site into housing and retail.

Architect Paul Stephens said:

“After living with a site ‘gap’ for a number of years and previous a petrol station, our design has tied Balham Hill together, creating a more energetic and contemporary street with a distinct quality.”
