Newport Street Gallery was designed by Caruso St John Architects. Grangewood Brickwork Services Ltd acted as brickwork contractor and used bespoke bricks manufactured by Northcot Brick.
‘In converting and extending the Victorian workshops (originally used for the production of theatre sets) the architect has developed a wonderfully subtle combination of urban street-making, place-making for art and the crafting of contemporary additions. There is a quiet and discreet confidence to this project, skill that might at first be overlooked, but on closer inspection becomes evident through the attention to composition, to detail and to the crafting of the beautifully sculpted brick stair voids. It is a pleasure to encounter such restrained architectural craft: all too rare in this time of ‘look-at-me’ public architecture. This project quite rightly melds into the historic warehouse street but at the same time, this private gallery is a gift to the public.'
