...in a few words
From individual luxury homes to entirely new residential communities, Baca Architects’ schemes have been repeatedly recognised as templates for flood resilient dwellings and have proven that flood risk mitigation can be delivered at commercial scale. By integrating architecture, high-end design and landscape design with cutting-edge technology, and a thoughtful response to the specific nature of the flood risk with adherence to LifE [Long Term Initiative for Flood Risk Environments] principles, we have achieved a number of firsts. These include The Amphibious House, the UK’s first multi-unit development in an Environment Agency designated flood plain, elevated houses and floating homes. Our planning proposals have overcome weaknesses in national planning policy, and we have a 100% track record of successful planning approval. Our designs respect the character of the surrounding area and the local architectural vernacular while integrating key environmental features, such as Passivhaus and energy self-sufficiency. Above all, we allow the blue landscape through, safely and for the enjoyment of residents, delivering value and longevity to our clients’ properties.
