6a Architects was founded by Tom Emerson and Stephanie Macdonald in 2001 after meeting as students at the Royal College of Art in London in 1995. The practice produces work on a variety of scales, from product and exhibition design to large-scale housing developments.
Its work for oki-ni on Savile Row has been recognised as a significant and innovative development in retail design. Current projects include a mixed-use development in Croatia, the conversion and extension of a former military building into eight contemporary houses in Fife, a summer pavilion for the Architecture Foundation in London and a contemporary art gallery, also in London.
6a Architects has recently won an international design competition for a social housing project in France, organised by CABE and the French Ministry of Culture.
