The civic centre, which officially opened last October, is one of 33 London winners of a RIBA award and is now eligible to be entered into the national finals in June.

Designed by Hopkins Architects, the civic centre is the most environmentally-friendly public building in the UK.

Tamsie Thomson, director of the RIBA’s London region, said: “London is an open and international city and has perhaps the highest concentration of design talent found anywhere in the world.
