Our new home changes the shape of UK drama training. It makes Mountview the leading academy in excellence, social access and innovation in training for the creative industries.
In partnership with Southwark Council and designed by Carl Turner Architects we have built a brand new home in the heart of Peckham in south London, next to the Stirling Prize-winning library.
We broke ground in April 2017 and we welcomed our students through the doors in September 2018, less than eighteen months later.
For the first time in many years we own our own home, with theatres, studios, workshops, meeting rooms, well-being facilities and work/office space.
Our move allows us to expand our provision for young people and adults, engaging new audiences of all ages with vocational arts training. There is community space to rent and cafes and bars ensuring our building is publicly accessible. In addition, we’ve created a home for the professional performing arts industry, with rehearsal space and studios available for hire.
Mountview’s new home was shortlisted as one of the buildings of the year at the NLA Awards 2019.
In 2020 Mountview was shortlisted for The Stage Theatre Building of the Year.
