Hackney New Primary School 333 Apartment

333 Kingsland Road shortlisted for RIBA Neave Brown Award 2022

July 2022

333 Kingsland Road has been honoured by being shortlisted for the RIBA Neave Brown Award for Housing 2022.

Named in honour of modernist architect Neave Brown (1929 – 2018), the award recognises the best new examples of affordable housing in the UK. 

It was described by the judges as "A striking red-brick apartment block with an open colonnade façade that provides 68 affordable homes and shelters a new local primary school."  

Commenting on the shortlist, RIBA President Simon Allford said: “High-rise, low-rise, urban, rural, existing and new – these three schemes realise thoughtful, affordable housing within complex locations. Innovative and purposeful, they also enhance and enrich their neighbouring spaces and communities. They set a benchmark - for clients, contractors and architects - for better UK housing. I congratulate all involved.”  

The shortlist was selected from the 2022 RIBA Regional Awards winners by an expert panel of judges: Partner at Pollard Thomas Edwards Kaye Stout (Chair), Architect and Development Manager at Meridian Water, Enfield Council Yemi Aladerun and Neave Brown family representative Professor David Porter. 

The winner of the 2022 Neave Brown Award for Housing will be announced at the RIBA Stirling Prize ceremony on Thursday 13 October 2022 at RIBA, 66 Portland Place in London.
