Architect Christophe Egret looks out over the dramatic geometry of the nearly completed interior of Clapham’s new library.

The Library Building, designed by Studio Egret West, opened in July and features a central performance space surrounded by a spiral ramp lined with bookshelves. It forms part of an £80m mixed-use regeneration scheme across two sites in Clapham that provides a new library, family health centre, leisure facilities and apartments, delivered by a joint venture between developer Cathedral Group and United House.
