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 Site Update - New Energy Yoga, Winchester, Hampshire

Paul Cashin Architects have been working to deliver the New Energy Yoga studios, a new contemporary specialist yoga venue on Parchment Street in Winchester, Hampshire.  In co-operation with New Energy Fitness, the yoga studio aims to be Winchesters premier yoga venue with classes and consultations in a dedicated space near the centre of town.

The project involves the refurbishment of a conservation area building known as Fountain House, which was previously a post office sorting centre.  The architectural concept for the new yoga studio will be to split the experience of arriving, preparing, and management of classes away from the serenity of the studio area.  This will be achieved by creating two different environments on each floor, accessed via a darkened stair case that twists and turns throughout the existing building.

Last week two students from the University of Portsmouth visited the project as part of the RIBA Mentoring Scheme.  The scheme is devised as a link between study and practice, as the RIBA state, “the purpose of the mentoring scheme is to give students an insight into practice and to enhance their learning experience.”
