In Northwich, Cheshire West and Chester Council have recently appointed lead artist, Katayoun Dowlatshahi to work on a design concept for the entire town centre. Katayoun has been working with the design team on the renewal of Witton Street and is collaborating with design teams for the new plans for the Memorial Court lifestyle centre and the regeneration of Barons Quay.
The overarching theme of the town will be salt and how it has influenced Northwich’s development, including its architecture, industry and waterways.
Witton Street is seen as the heritage core and the artwork will reflect the history and beauty of its buildings, with artistic interpretations of the timber framed buildings in Brunner Court, by the library, and St Paul’s Square, next to Northwich Art Shop.
