A Hackney barge turned floating church and a mixed-use development in the borough have received national architecture awards.
The 2021 RIBA National awards celebrate the work of architects across the UK. Fifty-four winners were selected by an expert jury from a shortlist of regional winners.
Genesis Floating Church, which is moored in Hackney Wick, and The Tiger Way development in Hackney Downs had previously been awarded RIBA London awards.
The barge was converted into a place of worship by architects Denizen Works, which are based in Hackney City Farm Yard on Goldsmiths Row.
Mixed-use development Tiger Way is a Hawkins/Brown project which has provided Hackney Downs with a new primary school and nursery and was funded through the sale of 89 private sale residential apartments located on the same site.
