Capital Campaign


In September 2018, after a 17-month build, we opened the doors of our brand new building in Peckham, south London, and welcomed a new generation of students to start their training. Mountview’s new home was designed by Carl Turner Architects (now Turner Works), a RIBA regional and national award–winning practice and built by Gilbert-Ash, builder of the Stirling Prize-winning Liverpool Everyman Theatre.
