Six Degrees

Melbourne architectural firm Six Degrees (the name derives from the chilly temperature on the iconic Nylex clock the day names were being discussed) is known for embracing human scale in their work, raw materials used in unexpectedly rich, quality finishes, materials that age and tell their story with time, layering and the Japanese concept of "gomi" or utilising unwanted objects,  re-inventeding them to suit a new purpose. Although now more widely know for their high use commercial and cultural spaces it is their smaller, domestic designs that I think really embrace their ideas of human scale, rich layering, reuse and raw materials.

The brick walls are awesome...
They make a lot of alternatives into the spaces.

What a great space! And that wood detailing is stunning

Though I'd probably like fewer and/or larger pieces of furniture (not as distracting from the details of the space), the space is beautiful, as well as livable. ~Sparky

Oh, LOOOOOOOVE SIX DEGREES!! Many of my favourite spaces in Melbourne have had their touch. Nice to see the white Pop pendant lights from ISM hanging in that white kitchen towards the end.

Six Degrees are amazing! I did my work placement with them during my interior design course. All the people in the office are just so great at what they do & yet so down to earth, totally committed to being sustainable & providing the right solution for their clients! Money couldn't have bought a better industry experience!
