Bespoke Brickmaking Creates a Stirling Prize Winner

SEP 17

Winner of the prestigious 2016 Stirling Prize, RIBA National Award and also Supreme winner in the Brick Development Association Brick Awards, The Newport Street Gallery has been highly praised for its bespoke brickwork.

 

Designed by Caruso St John Architects, the gallery occupies a terrace of new-build and refurbished buildings that line Newport Street’s eastern side opposite the elevated railway arches in Vauxhall, south London.

 

The brickwork was very much the unifying force binding the old and the new elements together. Northcot Brick, a manufacturer known for its advanced colour-matching expertise and traditional techniques worked with the architects to create two distinct bespoke blends of brick: Newport Light and Newport Dark with matching special shapes.
