Paul Cashin Architects | Contemporary Chartered Architects in Winchester, Hampshire / News

Paul Cashin Architects 'PCA' is a creative RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Chartered Architecture practice based in Winchester, Hampshire. PCA takes a design-led approach to the practise of contemporary architecture, believing that well thought and considered design is essential to the creation of successful architectural space.

The practice undertakes contemporary architectural design projects across residential, commercial and civic sectors of the construction industry. Currently having a number of live projects across Winchester, Hampshire and the South Coast including one-off new build houses, extensions and commercial business projects.


As a small practice, our strength lies in our inclusive and personal approach, working directly with clients, consultants, and contractors, encouraging the cross over between architecture and other areas of art and design.

We are in a consistent state of process, working through a range of media including physical and computer models, hand and computer drawings, sketching and conceptual diagrams, discussions and presentations.

Paul Cashin Architects Summer Trips and Visits, Romsey, Hampshire and Dorset

Summer Trip to Rochecourt & Mottisfont

We have been enjoying the summer period with some excursions to local galleries and foreign destinations.  Most recently we visited the building work underway for the new contemporary Visitors Centre at Mottisfont House near Romsey, Hampshire.  The new centre features weathered steel and large glazed openings, and opens later in 2016.

We also visited Rochecourt again, a fantastic private collection of landscape art and sculptures on the Hampshire/Dorset border.  The collection is partly housed in a contemporary extension designed by Stephen Marshall architects, which creates a link between the historic house and a garden room with large glass walls and a floating aluminium roof.  To the rear of the main property, the architect has designed a house for a resident artist.  We particularly admire the detailing of this project, the use of timber doors as windows, and aluminium as gutter profiles and the surrounds to openings.
