Kevin Cash graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor of Architecture Honors degree from Dundee University where he was awarded the Dundee City Council civic prize for design in the community.

He practiced in Dublin for four and a half years with two prestigious firms. There he was awarded a Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland (RIAI) / Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) part 3, “Certificate in Professional Practice and Management” from University College Dublin. 

Experience in Ireland included public & private commissions in new build & conservation.

He moved to Spain in 2003 where he was granted the title of Arquitecto by the Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia. In Spain he worked for a studio of architects as a design consultant gaining experience with public commissions for various town councils including urban planning, a sports complex, a municipal swimming centre and various private housing schemes.

In 2006 he started the Kevin Cash Arquitectos practice, a small enthusiastic firm.

As all architectural development has an impact on our surroundings we strive towards a more sustainable design approach by keeping in mind the mantra, reduce, reuse and recycle where possible.

Energy-optimised buildings need not impose additional costs, and compared to more highly-serviced ‘conventional’ buildings it will be significantly cheaper to operate.

Orienting the building to take advantage of the natural environment, giving shade to cool or sunlight to warm is applied. Using the prevailing wind direction to cool the interior by cross ventilation. Controlling the internal air quality by incorporating non toxic materials, adhesives and paints.

Specifying low energy input building materials from renewable energy resources help to manage our environment for further generations. Materials should be from sustainable resources when possible (internationally recognized certification bodies e.g. Breeam and LEED).

Sourcing materials near the site help contribute to the local economy whilst reducing contamination by cutting down on transport costs.

To achieve a more sustainable environment we look at new and old technologies; thermal mass, thermal solar panels for hot water heating, ground source heat pumps, heat recovery systems, ambient ground temperature for cooling air in summer and heating it in winter, wind turbines for generating electricity and high levels of insulation.

A holistic approach to the life cycle of a building is proposed, re-using where possible and recycling where not, from the demolition of old structures to the day to day running of services. Reducing water consumption and the treatment of waste is of great importance, surface water recycling and a comprehensive waste management study aids this.

The above creates a more comfortable place to dwell and gives continued financial savings to the end users, whilst the community benefits from reduced imports and energy consumption.
