One Crown Place Receives a ‘Special Mention’ in the Architizer A+ Awards

The recently completed development in the London Borough of Hackney was recognised in the Mixed-Use category.

One Crown Place revives an urban block, demonstrating how an intense mixed-use plan can contribute positively to the urban fabric. The project is a complex mix of office, affordable office, hotel, residential, and retail. The scheme incorporates a voluntarily retained Georgian terrace, new build comprising a commercial podium and two residential towers, and a 1970s office that is currently being retrofitted. The carefully scaled and shaped composition responds to the context with a material palette of brick and terracotta reflecting the character and diversity of Hackney. A mix of old and new, it brings 24/7 activity to all sides of the site.

Three other KPF-designed projects were selected as finalists: Westlake 66, One Vanderbilt, and KPF’s renovation of 712 Fifth Avenue’s lobby. The winners of the A+ Awards were drawn from thousands of entries in more than 80 countries and represent some of the best architecture in the world. See the full list here.
