About the Brewery Square scheme he said “This is a fantastic opportunity to link the town and railway station through a sequence of brilliant spaces, including the Brewery Square itself. The route is flanked by a lively array of shops, restaurants, Hotel, Arts Centre, with residential apartments above housed in an eclectic mix of listed buildings and exciting new architecture, like the very best kind of town centre”.
Sir Terence Conran - Conran & Partners
Sir Terence Conran’s internationally acclaimed architectural practice has been responsible for the conversion design of the listed buildings at Brewery Square; The Eldridge Pope Building, The Bonded Stores, Dorchester Brewery Hotel, including the Dorchester Spa, and The Maltings Arts Theatre. The practice has also designed two new buildings, The Brewhouse Apartments and Maltings Mews as well as all the hard landscaping, including the fountain and the world’s first puffing clock chimney!
Sir Terence said: “This scheme for Dorchester is exactly what you might expect from Andrew Wadsworth – entrepreneurial, imaginative, sensitive and thoroughly environmental. He really does understand how to get the best out of run down buildings and sees the opportunity for creating a place that people want to live and visit. I have no doubt that Brewery Square will make Dorchester a must visit town in the future.
We met many years ago in the development of Butlers Wharf by Tower Bridge and shared the same vision of how this derelict site could become an exciting part of London. It worked and played a vital role in the regeneration of the south bank of the river”.
Sebastian’s product innovations and inventions have been involved in dozens of patents in a wide variety of fields and his work has been awarded many design, marketing and innovation awards.
His design for the solar assisted street lamp for Brewery Square was inspired by the Arum Lily.
Ben de Lisi
The Ben de Lisi Bathrooms encapsulate his design philosophy that design should be low key, chic, understated but rich in detail.
His range of prestigious and modern sanitaryware stays true to this vision, turning the bathroom from a merely functional room into a sanctuary.
Anthony Paul is passionate about landscape design. He has been designing landscapes around the world for 30 years and is internationally recognised for his innovative and contemporary gardens.
Richard Eckford trained as a graphic designer but has gone on to become a renowned furniture designer with commissions including the Eden Project in Cornwall. His use of recycled timber has resulted in innovative designs for Brewery Square, in particular the bollards made from hardwood railway sleepers.
