Brent Civic Centre has won a prestigious architecture award a week after it was named one of the best places to work in south east England.
The £90million building in Engineer’s Way, Wembley, scooped the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) London Sustainability Award.
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.
“This year’s RIBA London Award winners demonstrate the ability of quality architecture to change people’s lives and enrich London’s built environment.”
Last week the civic centre jointly won the best corporate workplace category at the annual British Council for Offices (BCO) regional property sector awards alongside the BBC Broadcasting House in Portland Place.
