Nourish Hub NLA Award Winner


We are delighted to let you know that the Nourish Hub was awarded two prestigious prizes at last Friday’s NLA Awards at the Guildhall. Both awards particularly recognise the design and delivery team’s collaborative approach to co-design the hub with local community groups and stakeholders, as well as its impact through the hub’s feeding and education programmes.


The two prizes awarded to the Nourish hub are:



Supported by the Mayor of London
This prize is awarded to one project from all shortlisted entries to the NLA awards. The Mayor’s Prize in 2021 celebrates projects that provide lessons for the role that high streets can play in London’s recovery from the pandemic and its social and economic impacts. It highlights exemplary projects and initiatives that can guide and inform the London Recovery Board’s mission objective to ‘deliver enhanced public spaces and exciting new uses for underused high street buildings in every Borough by 2025, working with London's diverse communities’. In his announcement, Jules Pipe, the Deputy Mayor particularly commended the Nourish Hub in its role to bring people together through the medium of food, providing them with not only a nourishing meal but also opportunities for upskilling and tackling social isolation.



This prize celebrates community-driven design and collaboration. It is awarded to the scheme that demonstrates the most positive and meaningful impact on the place where it is located. Selected from submissions across all categories, the hub was celebrated for its exemplary response to the social context, contributing to a sense of local identity and helping communities to thrive.



“Food is the equaliser. It brings diverse communities together. Food insecurity is a pressing issue and for architecture to address social problems is important. Impact on society is great.”

- Eleanor Sharpe, Executive Director, Philadelphia City Planning


We’d like to thank all partners for helping to make this happen!
