The project was recently Commended in the Heritage and Restoration Category of the Hackney Design Awards 2020.The judges for Hackney Design Awards said;
“The careful and conservative repair to the west façade of this Grade I listed church is highly commended by the judge as a great example of the “touch lightly” approach to historic building conservation.”
It was reported that the judges were impressed by the amount of original material that the project team were able to retain by their painstaking process or investigation and design of repairs.
