Enquire about this Case Study

Working in close collaboration with the Architects Caruso St John one of the Brick manufacturers within the EH Smith group created two distinct bespoke blends for the project which was to be used to house the extensive collection of works owned by the patron of the project and allow them to be shared with the public.

The Newport Light and Newport Dark, these were both a variation on the standard production with one blend requiring the removal of a specific colour and the other needing a crisper edge than its standard version.

Newport Street Damien Hirst Art Gallery Testimonial
“The Newport Street Gallery involved the conversion of a terrace of three listed Victorian buildings, flanked at either end by new buildings, stretching along the whole length of the street. “In creating the new facades, we worked closely with the brick manufacturer, who used their brick-matching expertise to create two bespoke machine made blends - Newport Light and Newport Dark - to complement the industrial buildings.

Their skill and perseverance helped us to achieve our vision of creating a cohesive and impressive street elevation that blends modernity with links to its industrial past”.
