Kingston University's Town House Building has been named the winner of the Mies van der Rohe Award, the highest award in European Architecture.

Designed by an Irish Gold-medallist, Grafton Architects, Town House was opened to the public in January 2020. Located by the University's Penrhyn Road Campus, the contemporary building houses a three-floor library, dance studios, theatre, and courtyard, creating a learning space for both students and residents to freely use. 

"Creating a building for its students that was recognised as not only the best in the United Kingdom but also in the European Union, was the realisation of ambition many years in the making" - Kingston University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Steven Spier.

We are thrilled about the recognition Kingston University has received worldwide, and we look forward to what the future holds!
