Restoration and conversion of the stunning Grade II listed building, Thomas Bewick House, formerly Port of Tyne headquarters, immediately opposite Newcastle Central Station in the heart of the city

In 2006 Adderstone Group completed the conversion of Grade II listed, historic Thomas Bewick House into 18 impressive city centre apartments, each completely unique, along with a leisure space and restaurant area plus a cinema room in the basement. 

Throughout the process, meticulous care and attention was paid to ensure the development incorporated many of the original period features of the beautiful and famous building which had been the workshop of world-famous engraver and author Thomas Bewick.

The external facade of the building was retained and cleaned whilst the internal building was transformed.

To this day, the development includes several permanent displays of artwork commissioned as a tribute to Thomas Bewick, the world’s most famous wood engraver whose workshop was originally located on-site.
