Baca Architects

Baca Architects was founded in 2003 by Richard Coutts with the aim of integrating landscape and low carbon technology to create beautiful and enduring buildings. Since then, the practice has established a core specialism in innovative waterfront design and flood resilience, and Richard has become one of Europe’s foremost experts on designing with water. He is an advisor to the UK government’s Core Cities Floods Advisory Group and has recently been recognised as an RIBA Fellow.

Baca’s current and recent projects include: the UK’s first multi-dwelling development to be built in a flood zone, located near Stratford Upon Avon and nearing completion; planning consent for a hotel and spa in a new eco resort in Yorkshire; the design of a new waterside resort in east England; masterplans for several major waterfront regeneration schemes; and a number of private commissions for flood resilient homes, including the Amphibious House as featured on Grand Designs.
