Gillett Square Wins 2012 WAN Effectiveness Award\

Following last year’s success in the WAN Colour in Architecture Awards, Hawkins\Brown has won this year’s WAN Effectiveness Award for their project at Gillett Square in Dalston, London.

The story behind the creation of Gillett Square spans twenty five years of planned incremental development by Adam Hart of Hackney Co-Operative Developments and Hawkins\Brown in the Bradbury Street / Gillett Street area of Dalston, culminating in the transformation of a derelict car park into a new pedestrian space that knits together the surrounding community buildings and creates a new cultural hub for the neighbourhood.

The scheme, which was the first completed project in Mayor Ken Livingstone’s ‘100 Spaces for Londoners’ Programme, was praised for the positive contribution it has made to the local community.
