Hackney Design Award Winners 2019

The winners of this year's prestigious awards have been announced following a rigorous selection process by a panel of architects and urban design experts.

The awards were set up by the Council in 2004 to celebrate the rich variety of design and architecture in the borough.

This year, 42 nominated projects were whittled down to 15 shortlisted schemes by the judges, who then visited each of the schemes to select the six winning designs and four commendations.The shortlist was also put to the public vote in the People's Choice Award, with almost 600 votes received.

Judging Panel Chair, Matthew Lloyd, whose practice designed Frampton Park Baptist Church, a 2016 Design Awards winner, said: "The biennial Hackney Design Awards have once again shown the sheer quality of architecture that is consistently produced within this single London borough.

The Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville, added: "This year's Hackney Design Awards showcase not only the contribution great design makes to the fabric of our borough, but the real difference it makes to the lives of people in Hackney. My congratulations go to all the winners and shortlisted schemes and my thanks go to the judging panel and the people who nominated these inspiring buildings and public spaces."
