Avanti Architects originally made their name with scholarly restorations of famous Modernist buildings such as the Finsbury Health Centre in London by Bertold Lubetkin. The Urswick School, built in a deprived borough of London called Hackney, is however a new build project designed by the practice. The building has just won this year’s Peoples Choice Award at the Hackney Design Awards. The awards scheme is designed to stimulate and promote good design in the borough.
