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: Planning Permission Granted for Steam Town Brew Co., Eastleigh, Hampshire

Paul Cashin Architects: Planning Permission Granted for Steam Town Brew Co., Eastleigh, Hampshire

Planning permission has been secured for our Craft Beer Brewery in Eastleigh.  The conversion of the existing cafe on the corner of Bishopstoke Road and Dutton Lane has been granted licence and change of use permission for a brewery and tap room.

We are now working with the clients to produce internal refurbishment details which will focus on the brewing process of craft/local beers.  The interior spaces will make references to the history of industry in Eastleigh, a railway town with an industrious past which includes the Spitfire aircraft and train sidings.  We propose to create furniture and fixtures from up-cycled materials once used in the industries linked to the town.

Work is set to begin this summer with a proposed opening in Autumn, and the brewery itself beginning production for the Christmas period.
