Dezeen presents: Designed in Hackney


Designed in Hackney

Dezeen today launches a new initiative to celebrate the incredible diversity of design talent in the east London borough of Hackney.

Designed in Hackney will showcase world-class architecture and design created in the borough, which is one of the five host boroughs for the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as being home to Dezeen's offices.

Each day from tomorrow until the games this summer, Dezeen will publish buildings, interiors and objects that have been designed in Hackney, creating a unique guide to the borough's rich and diverse design community.

The showcase can be accessed via

If you're a Hackney designer or architect and you'd like your work featured, please drop us a line with "Designed in Hackney" in the subject line.

The Designed in Hackney logo has been developed by our Hackney neighbours Zerofee.

  • What about the other 5 host boroughs Barking & Dagenham, Greenwich, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest, or are they not 'cool' enough for dezeen?

    • But we're in Hackney…

    As urban designer, I really dislike this design. It completely turns its back on the public realm and doesn't give the neigbourhood anything. Maybe that is the charm of Shoreditch…that you have to explore inside the spaces of clubs, galleries and cafes (?). Get to know the place. But this is just a house…. we are never going to be invited in. It's just a two fingered salute to indiviualism. I've tried to like this design…. I even lived right next to it for a couple of years. Imagine a city where every building was this cold and shallow….. no thanks!

    BTW…. Chance Street is definately in Tower Hamlets….not Hackney
