London practice Baca Architects was founded by British architect Richard Coutts in 2003. The firm employs a small team of architectural professionals at its Bermondsey office.
The studio specialises in waterfront architecture and flood resilience, integrating landscaping and low-carbon technology to create buildings that will stand the test of time. Completed projects include floating leisure and residential schemes in areas of flood risk.
