About Six Degrees Architects

Videography: Michael Zito

Our highly skilled team delivers master planning and design solutions for urban precincts, new buildings and redevelopments. We have the experience to create environments that fundamentally ‘work’ and engage with people’s aspirations of what their cities should be. We believe in the power of listening and collaborating; reaching solutions by gaining a deep understanding of the context, client and community.

We can solve the most challenging aspects of your project, providing expert guidance to ensure excellent outcomes and productive, long-term partnerships. An empathetic response to the site’s ecology and user needs has been the foundation for the successful delivery of our projects achieved in over 30 years of practice.

EXPERTS IN CREATING CONNECTION

Our ability to develop urban planning and design strategies to create new urban places and to activate underperforming civic and retail precincts is a core strength.

We look at a site beyond its boundaries and create not just a building but a sense of place - respectful of its past, its natural context and its existing neighbourhood. We understand human behaviour and have the unique skills to transform places of any scale and complexity, to create connection and belonging.

We observe Country and we study the city, allowing this understanding to inform our design.

NATURAL COLLABORATORS

We value our people and encourage them to explore and think deeply. We foster an open studio culture that empowers every individual and welcomes debate and interaction for a healthy cross-pollination of ideas.

We know how to get the best out of each practitioner, allowing their work to sing, while steering the project to provide a cohesive outcome with a minimum of fuss. The team work closely together across projects to draw on the strengths of each individual to enrich the design solution.

ENVIRONMENTALLY AND SOCIALLY SUSTAINABLE

Six Degrees has been committed to sustainable design practices since its inception, making us experts in the creation of socially inclusive, sustainable buildings, interiors and urban places. A carbon-neutral operation since 2020, we work with clients to achieve environmentally and socially sustainable developments and to improve living conditions. Our designs encourage connection to place and between people, offering easy access to light, ventilation and the natural environment. We embed this approach in all the design outcomes we pursue.

Six Degrees acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present.
