Baca + Waterstudio
Award winning architects with 100 per cent planning success. Baca Architects have established a core specialism in waterfront and water architecture.
Baca Architects are the UK's foremost experts in flood resilient and floating architecture. We focus on adaptive design and masterplanning, on, near or under water. Our approach is to work with the challenges of climate change, turning potential threats into opportunities to regenerate docks, riverside sites, lakes and floodplains. We combine proven methods of flood protection and world class environmentally responsible architecture to create unique spaces and communities.
Our built projects are created in response to specific flood risk conditions. These range from large-scale regeneration schemes, waterfront hotel and leisure destinations, marinas, residential developments and individual homes including the UKs first Amphibious House. Collaborating internationally as a partner of BuiltOnWater.com we offer global solutions to water-based master-planning, design and construction.
“We have no choice but to live with water; we do however have a choice about how we design with it” Richard Coutts, Principal, Baca Architects
