| RIBA Chartered Architecture Practice in Winchester, Hampshire

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 Trip to New London Galleries

As part of our on-going trips to award winning buildings, we have recently taken the train up from our studio in Hampshire to visit London, touring a number of new galleries completed in 2016. These included, the Design Museum by John Pawson, Tate Modern Museum Extension by Herzog and de Meuron architects, and Damien Hirst's Newport Street Gallery by Caruso St John architects.

Each of these projects has won awards for gallery and civic spaces, and each represent very different approaches to refurbishing and remodelling existing buildings for new purposes and in a contemporary and modern fashion. Some are rough and raw while others are refined and clinical, some spaces feel stark, sublime or grand while others feel warm, manic or subdued. All are interesting in their own right. The Newport Street Gallery in particular is very worthy of it's recent Stirling Prize - the staircases and 'Pharmacy 2' restaurant are fantastic spaces.  Artist, Gavin Turk is currently exhibiting his sculptures and works until March 17th.
