Hackney Marshes Centre

At Stanton Williams Larissa Johnston was the Project Architect responsible for the delivery of this new £5.6m sports and community building. The building is notable for its innovative and expressive use of materials which blend harmoniously into the natural surroundings. Inventive technologies include the use of a series of moveable weathering steel shutters which allow the building to be securely shut down when it is not in use. The project has won numerous awards including the following:-

  • 2016 London Planning Awards, Best Project Five years on
  • 2013 AIA UK Excellence in Design Award
  • 2012 RIBA Award
  • 2012 Civic Trust Award
  • 2012 New London Award, Sport and Play Category
  • 2012 Highly Commended RICS Awards London
  • 2012 Certificate of Excellence, Concrete Society Awards
  • 2012 Hackney Design Award
  • 2012 Structural Award [Shortlisted]
  • 2012 Stirling Prize [Mid-listed]
