Winners of New London Architecture Awards announced - joint overall winners

New London Architecture (NLA) has honoured the UK capital’s very best architecture, planning and development as London’s centre for the built environment announced the winners of the New London Awards at a lunchtime ceremony at Guildhall in the City on Tuesday 10 July.

The New London Awards celebrate the best schemes in the capital both built and on the drawing board, temporary and permanent - giving recognition to the impact projects have on their surroundings and their contribution to London as well as to their architectural quality.

Two entries shared the top slot by being awarded the prestigious ‘Overall Winner’ accolade: the King’s Cross Station Redevelopment and the Olympic Legacy Communities Masterplan - both commended for their outstanding contributions to the way London works now and as it shapes up beyond the Olympics.

There was acclaim too for Sellar Property Group’s Irvine Sellar, who scooped the New Londoner of the Year award in recognition of his drive and determination to build one of the most talked-about London schemes in years - the Shard at London Bridge.

The full list of winners is:
