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 Achieves Planning for New Project

We are delighted to announce that our contemporary house extension in Sidlesham, West Sussex, has received planning permission.

The project will involve the refurbishment and extension of a detached cottage in a conservation area, at the southern limit of Sidlesham Quay village.  The property was highlighted by the local authority as a key example of rural vernacular character for homes in the area.  Paul Cashin Architects were appointed in December 2015 to remodel the house for new owners, with work starting in the Spring of 2017.  The design includes a landscaping strategy that alleviates flood risk by providing a bung to the garden edge, whilst encouraging native species planting to take over a new timber structure that is directly connected to the house.  This approach will help to plant the house in its surroundings, which is vital given the local connection to the Sidlesham Nature Reserve.

Take a closer look at the scheme on our projects page here, or if you would like to discuss a project please view our contact page here. Our office is located in Winchester, Hampshire, but we undertake projects across the whole of Southern England.
