Newport Street

Newport Street

The site is most often viewed on the move as a glimpse from passing trains into and out of Waterloo. Its famous neighbour (The Newport Street Gallery) sets the screen – currently dominating the street with its collection of buildings and spiked roof. The elevated railway opposite with high rise city beyond opposite provides an ever-moving backdrop. The railway arches rhythmic pattern provide focus, interest and activity at street level. You are aware of a sense of rhythm and movement. Its neighbour – now the art gallery was originally specifically designed to paint scenery and construct large sets/props for the Theatre
