Stephanie Macdonald


Founded by Tom Emerson and Stephanie Macdonald in 2001, 6a has an increasingly distinguished portfolio. Cowan Court (Churchill College, Cambridge’s new halls of residence) was the first new court commissioned by the college since its establishment, and is adorned with the wooden floorboards of a French goods train. It’s a complex and inspiring work, both brutalist and delicate. 6a has also worked on the South London Gallery – for which it won multiple awards for renovation – and the MK Gallery.

The firm was recently shortlisted to convert a wing of Sheffield’s Park Hill Estate into an international arts venue, and for the Stirling Prize, for its photography studio for Juergen Teller.
