Hackney Wick won a national Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA) gong for its contribution to architecture as well as a RIBA London award.

Adam Brown, a partner at the architecture firm Landolt and Brown, said: "I am delighted to have received a national award, as it represents the best of the best from this year's regional award winners and the standard of design is always very high."

The overground station was designed by Landolt and Brown to reflect the area's industrial heritage and waterways.

Lorna Samways, of Network Rail Anglia, said: "It's a testament to everyone who worked on the project that Hackney Wick has been recognised as a significant contribution to architecture by RIBA.

"Network Rail and the London Legacy Development Corporation have collaborated to create a bigger and better station while reflecting the unique culture and history of the area in the design."
