Damien Hirst to build a town



Nicknamed “Hirst-on-Sea”, it will house 3,000 people in 750 homes, a school, shops, a health centre, offices, sports pitches and cycle paths.

The images from the planning application lodged with North Devon council reveal the design of some of the houses and public areas.

Hirst, 48, whose country estate is five miles from the site near Ilfracombe, is said to have a horror of “anonymous, lifeless buildings” and wants “the kind of homes he would want to live in”. Via: Evening Standard
