Urban Spaces : Newport Street Gallery
The Newport Street Gallery is an art gallery in Vauxhall, which displays the personal art collection of Damien Hirst. It runs the length of Newport Street and has become a landmark in the area.
Hirst announced plans for the gallery in March 2012, and it opened in October 2015. It includes a shop, the Restaurant Pharmacy2, and offices for Hirst's company.
The building is a former theatre carpentry and scenery production workshop, redesigned by Caruso St John. The design was praised for its "virtuosity", and in October 2016 it won the RIBA Stirling Prize.
