SIX Architecture + Design
We believe that architecture is about more than just design + building materials. Architecture is about understanding people and shaping the environment to meet their needs in an innovative and responsible way.
SIX Architecture + Design Ltd (SIX AD) specialises in providing high quality architecture, design, consultancy and project management services for clients within a range of sectors - from private domestic and residential, to commercial, industrial, healthcare and education.
Formed in 2009, our design experience is partnered with state-of-the-art Building Information Modelling (BIM) capabilities - a combination resulting in schemes that consistently exceed our clients’ expectations.
SIX AD is founded on six guiding principles.
To design with a commitment to innovate architectural solutions
Beauty can be expressed in the function of objects and buildings. Simplicity in form and function leads to intuitive experiences and a closer sense of connection with our environment. As a creative and dynamic practice, we explore alternatives to the accepted or conventional approach.
To practice with integrity and to respect people and their beliefs
Experience has proven that the best results are achieved when all parties understand expectations, where honesty and truth are held in the highest regard, and where promises are kept. Our reputation is built on the personal integrity of each member of our team.
To provide flexible building solutions that embody sustainable design
Flexibility in use and consideration for a buildings predicted lifecycle and potential future adaptation are key in the design of all of our projects. Where possible we choose materials that exceed minimum performance standards, with options to renew, re-use or recycle when the time comes.
To be committed to continued learning and the application of best practice
Remaining at the forefront of current thinking is essential for achieving the best possible results. It is also a core component of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) membership. We draw inspiration from many sources in our commitment to expanding our knowledge base.
To meet our clients' needs in a cost effective way, and exceed expectations
In order to provide high quality services within budget, we dedicate significant resources to streamlining working methods. Our investment in state-of-the-art software provides unique design freedom and allows us to collaborate more closely with our clients.
To enhance the lives of end-users and the wider community through sensitive design
Architecture is an expression of the human story, and it can change lives. We believe in architecture that is accessible, legible, and inspirational.
