Architect’s insights at Newport Street Gallery

Newport Street Gallery



​An exclusive Drawing Circle tour of Newport Street Gallery with architect Peter St John of Caruso St John

Opened on 8 October 2015, Newport Street Gallery is the realisation of Damien Hirst’s long-term ambition to share his art collection with the public. Designed by architects Caruso St John, the gallery spans 37,000 square feet and includes six exhibition spaces – one with a ceiling height of eleven metres – split over two levels. The construction of Newport Street Gallery involved the conversion of three listed Victorian buildings, which were purpose-built in 1913 to serve as scenery painting studios for the booming local and West End theatre industries. With the addition of two new buildings, the gallery now spans half the length of the street.
