6a architects (Stephanie Macdonald, Tom Emerson, founded in 2001) illustrate in their projects a sophisticated experience of space, light and material, also using locations throughout their history. Their work is surprising through its sovereign sense of lightness and originality, without disowning any of its sobriety.
Stephanie Macdonald, studied Fine Arts at the Portsmouth School of Art. Following a scholarship in Japan, he studied architecture at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, the Royal College of Art and the University of North London.
