The winners of the 2022 Hackney Design Awards were announced at a ceremony in Hackney Town Hall on 8 December.  First launched in 2004, the biennial Hackney Design Awards were set up to recognise innovative and sustainable building designs, architecture and spaces in Hackney.

This year, 31 nominated projects were whittled down to 11 shortlisted schemes by the judges, who visited each design and selected the winners. The shortlist was also put to a public vote in the People’s Choice Award, with over 500 votes received.


Message from Philip Glanville, Mayor of Hackney

“As always, the schemes nominated for this year’s awards showcase the rich variety of design and architecture in the borough, which contributes to and improves the fabric of Hackney, helps to tackle the climate emergency, and makes a real difference to people’s lives. The awards are a testament to what can be achieved when we work together with visionary architects, developers and residents. They have helped innovate and drive up standards and our collective commitment to design. I am particularly proud of Hackney’s past achievement at the Design Awards, including Aikin Villas in 2018 and Kings Crescent Estate in 2018. We also had the fantastic restoration of Hackney Town Hall, also an award winner in 2018.

I would like to thank all those who nominated this year and say a big congratulations to all our shortlisted nominations and winners.”
