"It was a fantastic experience to plan, build, and now live in Hackney. For architecture to be encouraged by Hackney Council in this way, and to make buildings we can all be proud of, is also terrific. We look forward to our next project in the borough."

David Mikhail, from Mikhail Riches Architects, one of the five winners from the Hackney Design Awards 2014.
