The New Clapham Library



The New Clapham Library

This is London's most stunning new iconic library.

Location: 91 Clapham High Street, Clapham, SW4 7DB

Description: This landmark state-of-the-art library in the heart of Clapham opened its doors in July 2012 at a time when some cash-strapped councils are closing them. Lambeth Council bucked the trend by opening the brand new 6.5 million public library right on Clapham High Street. It didnt cost the public purse anything because it's been paid for by the sale of 136 residential flats that form part of the new 12 storey development.

Open seven days a week, it will house more than 20,000 books, a performance space for use by local community groups, a new medical centre, caf, internet zone and community rooms.

The stunning building features a distinctive spiral design reminiscent of the Guggenheim Museum. It's the masterwork of famous London-based architects Studio Egret West.
