Building Stories – The Awards Talks: St John's Church, Hackney and the Fratry

Clive England (Thomas Ford & Partners) and Ingrid Petit (Feilden Fowles) lead this discussion, part of a series celebrating RIBA award-winning buildings, on St John’s Church, Hackney and the Fratry.

This is a recording of an online event that took place on 17 January 2023.

Hosted by Jo McCafferty (Levitt Bernstein), the panel share the unique stories behind St John’s Church, Hackney and The Fratry.

St John’s Church, Hackney by Thomas Ford & Partners with John Pawson – Externally, a neo-classical Georgian parish church with a generous entrance portico stands. What lies within, however, is a true diversification of an Anglican place of worship into a centre for the arts and a world class music and events venue. An exemplary model of how to ensure churches can be brilliant resources and hubs for their local community, it won a 2022 RIBA National Award and London Award.

The Fratry by Feilden Fowles – The project articulates an inspiring journey from concept to occupation; creating an engaging piece of placemaking where community input has enabled the delivery of social value, a piece of city pride and inclusivity. It won a 2022 RIBA National Award, North West Award and North West Project Architect of the Year Award.
