BUILDING IN, ON, OR NEAR WATER

Baca is an award-winning architecture practice with an integrated environmental, landscape and design approach, specialising in building in, on or near water. The interaction of water and the built environment offer the opportunity to consider how engineering and aesthetics come together to create wonderful spaces. Over a decade of practice has evolved 5 disciplines of expertise: homes, technology, masterplanning, research and international development. This enables a holistic and intelligent approach to each project regardless of scale or complexity.

Baca Architects are the UK's foremost experts in flood resilient architecture. We specialise in building on water, in water and near water; we call this 'Aquatecture'. Our aim is to work WITH the challenges posed by climate change, incorporating research led methods of flood protection and flood prevention into the production of world class architecture and urban design. Our expertise in working with flood risk informs a wide range of projects, from a one-off bespoke waterfront house, a floating house, an amphibious house to flood resilient waterfronts and flood mitigation masterplans. We bring beautiful design, engineering and flood resilience together to create unique spaces and communities. Our design ethos is adopted across all projects, large and small, reflecting our core values of environmentally responsible design. 

 

As a flood architect and flood masterplanner, our projects all progress through internal flood resilience consultancy to ensure all projects are safeguarded against any present or future flood threat. This is achieved by working with the latest flood data and modelling to promote the highest standards within flood defence design. This includes our wide portfolio of floating lodges and floating architecture, highlighting the benefits and sustainability of living beyond the waterfront
