The Newport Street Gallery is an art gallery in London, England which displays the personal art collection of Damien Hirst.

Hirst announced plans for the gallery in March 2012, and it opened the in October 2015. The 37,000 sq ft gallery is made up of almost an entire street of listed Victorian industrial buildings which was formerly a theatre carpentry and scenery production workshop for the West End theatres.

Redesigned by Caruso St John and now includes a shop, a restaurant, and offices for Hirst’s company. The design was praised for its “virtuosity”, and in October 2016 it won the RIBA Stirling Prize.

Diffusion supplied bespoke Highline and Lowline fan coils.
