About Us

When six architecture graduates shared a studio space in Richmond, Melbourne, in the early 1990s it marked the genesis of Six Degrees. The group collaborated on small residential and commercial commissions, public sculpture and architectural competitions. As we debated a name for the practice, the temperature on the nearby iconic Nylex clock read an icy 6°. The name stuck and Six Degrees was born. The recession of the early 1990s was a difficult time for architects, but it had a significant influence on the development of our practice, philosophy and aesthetic. Early projects were inventive and resourceful, adapting warehouses and empty city office buildings into dwellings, often using low-cost and found materials. In the ensuing years Six Degrees has become a specialist in creating high-use places in contexts that include learning, hospitality, retail, workplace, health and multi-residential. Where early commissions were small, today we devise large and complex new buildings and urban spaces, and continue to inventively adapt historical and existing places. We have developed the skills to design buildings and precincts that work, distinctive not just for their aesthetic but because they are successful and enduring for their clients and communities.

Services Provided

We design functional, aesthetic and sustainable environments that are commercially smart. This approach has made Six Degrees a specialist in creating high-use places that vary in both application and scale, and that are consummate performers. Our broad range of design experience has allowed our ideas to cross-pollinate; hospitality projects, for example, resonate through learning.
