A train station has scooped two design awards from national architecture experts.
Hackney Wick won a national Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA) gong for its contribution to architecture as well as a RIBA London award.
Adam Brown, a partner at the architecture firm Landolt and Brown, said: "I am delighted to have received a national award, as it represents the best of the best from this year's regional award winners and the standard of design is always very high."
The judges hailed the station's "handsome concrete relief", "choice of terrazzo and concrete flooring" as well as its "delightful willow tree inspired aluminium screen".
The overground station was designed by Landolt and Brown to reflect the area's industrial heritage and waterways.
