Taking over from a previous architect, SIX Architecture + Design were employed to ‘re-think’ an extension to a Victorian terrace in Sheffield, already underway.
Combining the drive of the client to create something different and putting to the test SIX AD’s ability to bring synergy to traditional and contemporary aesthetics, this extension was going to prove to be an interesting challenge.
Now completed, the bespoke details provide clean lines and a modern aesthetic, enclosing a highly insulated envelope.
On a site that laid dormant for over a decade, clients John Williams and Steve Thompson commissioned SIX Architecture + Design to design a series of speculative light industrial units in Chesterfield.
While there was strong contextual precedents on neighbouring sites, SIX AD saw an opportunity to re-define light-industrial aesthetics, without breaking the budget.
With the attractive Rivelin Valley greenbelt backing onto their Stannington home, our clients wanted SIX Architecture + Design to keep the greenbelt views of Sheffield, but reconfigure their home to match their changing family needs.
SIX Architecture + Design were appointed to plan an extensive refurbishment, modernisation and extension to a 1950s semi-detached house in Millhouses, Sheffield – a much needed facelift, 60 years in the making.
Rear extension and redevelopment of the existing ground floor, creates opportunities for space and light.
SIX Architecture + Design met with Tim Hammond and Nynke Wierda in May 2011 to discuss the redevelopment and extension of their 1930s detached house in Wadsley, Sheffield. After listening to their requirements, SIX AD proposed some radically new plans for their home.

Already a spacious family home, SIX AD were invited to help the owners maximise the potential of the house with a small but perfectly formed rear extension and garage conversion.
This large family home required updating to allow for an accessible interior and level access to the rear garden. Two separate extension elements allowed for kitchen and bedroom extensions, and both are unified by an external canopy providing shelter to the glazed openings. This transformed how the family can use the house and allowed for a subtle transition between internal and external spaces.
SIX AD were asked to reimagine this large semi detached home internally to meet the requirements of the client's family. A drop in ground level to the rear of the property has also allowed a contemporary two storey extension to be created that seamlessly links the extended main living spaces to a new sitting room at lower level with direct access to the garden.
This imposing detached family home already had spacious internal rooms, however SIX AD were asked to consider how the flow between these spaces could be improved. Work included the removal of internal walls, repositioning of circulation and also the addition of extension elements to the rear and new dormers to the second floor.
The owner of this large semi-detached home asked SIX AD to create a contemporary open-plan living space spanning the rear of the property, and design a two storey side extension incorporating garage/utility accommodation, with a master bedroom suite to the first floor. Works also included a re-design of the second floor attic space.
SIX AD were asked to design a two storey side extension on an irregular plot to allow for the inclusion of a garage and workshop/utility space, and a new master bedroom and ensuite to first floor level. The form of the design minimised the massing at the front of the property, allowing the main house to remain dominant, whilst allowing increased space towards the rear.
This large detached 1950s family home already had generous internal spaces, but these were not arranged to best effect for the lifestyle of the owners. SIX AD were asked to rethink the internal layout, with the addition of a modern extension spanning the rear of the property, thereby transforming the way the family could enjoy their home.
The owners of this semi-detached family home asked SIX Architecture + Design to help them realise the potential of what were already great internal spaces. SIX AD were able to help our clients re-think some underused areas as well as reconfiguring and enlarging the ground floor rooms for this family of five.
SIX Architecture + Design were invited to help rationalise and modernise the internal layout of this unusually shaped 1930s corner house, including a large attic conversion and refurbishment.
The owners of this 1930s family home had outgrown the space but didn't want to move; SIX AD were asked to 'upsize' the house to accommodate the changing needs of the family. Testament to the ever changing requirements on the modern family home, this home needed to facilitate living, working and exercising.
Originally an old cowshed, SIX Architecture + Design were employed to assist our clients in creating an open plan home for a disabled relative. After much consideration, the best solution presented itself as the careful demolition and reconstruction of something new in its place, opening up exciting possibilities and unforeseen challenges for both SIX AD and our clients.
With some challenging levels to work round, SIX AD assisted the owners in rationalising those levels both inside and out, encorporating a new side extension and landscaping to the front of the house.
This barn conversion in rural Sheffield offered exciting possibilities for the owners. They asked SIX AD to help them explore those possibilities in the form of a potential retreat centre, making the most of the surrounding countryside.
The owners of this semi detached home wanted their house to work better for them; they asked SIX Architecture + Design to provide them with some options for internal reconfiguration and extension of their home, also creating a better transition between indoor and outdoor.
Our clients wanted to extend their home; SIX AD were asked to design a two storey extension which would not infringe on light coming into their kitchen and which would create a better flow of movement between ground floor rooms.
SIX AD were asked to assist our clients in transforming the ground floor of their home. They wanted to create a minimal, light and spacious aesthetic in their extension, with a strong connection between interior and exterior living spaces.
This spacious five bedroom modern home already had plenty of potential for comfortable family living. However, with four small children, our clients invited SIX AD to help them extend and maximise important high traffic areas like the somewhat undersized kitchen, and also rethink the connection between the house and garden.
