Newport Street Gallery was designed by Caruso St John Architects. Grangewood Brickwork Services acted as brickwok contractor and used bespoke bricks manufactured by Northcot Brick.

‘The whole building presents itself as a most fitting venue for housing works of art’. The new brickwork successfully complements the industrial quality of the original building, maintaining its personality and rawness, perfectly meeting the criteria for showcasing Damien Hirst’s art. ‘The choice of brick on the exterior is absolutely spot on and seamlessly links to context. A beautiful hard brick that is modern but industrial in character.’ The quality of the brickwork and associated detail is exceptionally high and the judges were captivated by the ‘quietly spoken, assured confidence’ of the building. ‘This private gallery is a gift to the public.’
