Scheme name: Hackney Marshes Centre

Practice: Stanton Williams

Client: London Borough of Hackney

Photographer: Hufton + Crow

Hackney Marshes is the home of amateur Sunday League football in London. The centre provides a community hub comprising changing rooms, a cafe and an education facility for players and the wider community.

The restrained palette of rubble-filled gabions and corten steel makes reference to the historic uses of the site, while the building's simple, linear form creates a gateway to the park.

Large sliding perforating corten screens 'lock down' the centre at night, enhancing its sculptural presence in the marsh landscape.
