PCA is a contemporary RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Chartered Architecture practice based in Winchester, Hampshire founded in 2012 by Paul Cashin.
Although relatively young, the practice has undertaken projects across the UK and overseas with currently a number of live projects in residential and commercial sectors spanning Southern England.
PCA is committed to a creative and design-led perspective to the architectural process, believing that well thought and considered design is essential to the creation of successful architectural space.
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 believe in the importance of process to architecture and design, working through a range of media including physical and computer models, hand and computer drawings, sketching and conceptual diagrams, discussions and presentations.
