RIBA Chartered Practice

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 Appoints New Team Member, Part 2 Architectural Assistant!

Oliver joins the team

We would like to welcome Oliver to the team, starting full time in July.  Oliver has recently completed his Part 2 RIBA Masters in Architecture at the University of Westminster, passing with Distinction.  He was a member of the studio ran by Sean Griffiths (of FAT Architects, http://www.fashionarchitecturetaste.com/) and Kester Rattenbury (Architectural critic and writer).

His studies included experimenting with the opportunity of chance in design, methods focused on using the I-Ching book from ancient China, where coins are tossed and outcomes are determined by chance, then assigned to different design ideas.  This was influenced by the experimental composer John Cage whom used this method to create music.

We welcome Oliver to the team and look forward to his contribution to projects going forward.
