The Hackney Marshes Centre was praised for its seamless integration of form, function, structure, services and fabric, winning last night's Hackney Design Award.
The judges commented:
"This is a building that illustrates the value of architecture, showing how joined up thinking can create a seamless integration of form, function, structure, services and fabric underpinned by a strong concept.
The architecture is tough. It has to be to take the knocks and bangs of hundreds of Sunday league footballers but it somehow still manages to be really attractive building to be in, to be on, to walk through, and to look at."
