Out and About: Sea Point Library
Sea Point Library is one of my favourite buildings in Cape Town, not least for the spectacular concrete brise-soleil surrounding the building! Friday was the first time I’ve actually stopped the car to take some photos and to go inside the building, where I was totally charmed by the old-school style and profusion of potted plants all over the place. I also discovered that the foundation stone was laid in 1970, and that the library was designed by Cape Town architect Graham Ramsay.
I hope you enjoy a visit with me to this Cape Town architectural treasure.
Update: When launching our 2016 fabric collection, BRISE SOLEIL, I had the brainwave of holding the launch at the library. What a fabulous evening we had!
What a lovely space! It is inviting, orderly, well tended and shows great respect for books and people. Thanks for sharing.
one of my favourite spaces in CT and so well used by the community – so clearly loved all round.
Thanks for taking those pics. So fantastic to see such a well ordered and beautiful library. this library is kept in this condition by committed librarians with lots of tender loving care. Well done! 🙂
