Town House – Kingston University

The recipient of the RIBA Royal Gold Medal 2020, Grafton Architects, has completed Town House – a landmark teaching building for Kingston University in London.

The Dublin-based practice was selected to design the scheme from a five-strong shortlist following a competition initiated by Kingston University in conjunction with RIBA in 2013. Designed to act as the University’s front door and a gateway to Kingston upon Thames, Town House, constructed by the multi-award-winning contractor Willmott Dixon, is part of a new vision for Kingston, encouraging informal learning and building stronger links with the town centre and connecting its vibrant student population with the local community.
