The Black Cultural Archives in Brixton has been announced as the overall winner of the New London Architecture awards. The project turned derelict Grade II-listed building Raleigh Hall into a permanent space dedicated to black heritage in Britain. It was designed by architects Pringle Richards Sharratt and completed in July 2014. It follows in the footsteps of King’s Cross Central, which won the award last year.
The awards, which are now in their tenth year, celebrate the best designs in the city that are either recently finished or heading towards completion. Other winners included the Garden Bridge and South Bank Tower, as well as architect Zaha Hadid, who won New Londoner of the Year. They were selected by a judging panel of architects and planning experts from around the world.
