A spiral house, a bingo hall and one of the capital's most sought-after regeneration districts are among the borough's most inspiring properties selected for next week's Open House London.

Nineteen buildings in Wandsworth will be open to the public over the weekend, as more than 700 properties across London open their doors to architecture-fans.

The two-day festival is run by Open City, a not-for-profit architecture organisation which aims to promote public awareness and appreciation of the capital's design and architecture.

Here are some of our picks of Wandsworth properties taking part.

Roehampton's beautiful 250-year-old Parkstead House, now home of Whitelands College at the University of Roehampton.

Wimbledon Times:

Designed by William Chambers in the palladian style for Lord Bessborough in c.1762, rooms can be seen today in the styles of previous owners of the landed gentry.

Free tours will be conducted by the university's heritage expert Gilly King, who will tell the story of the house from its earliest owners through its time as a Jesuit training house and soldiers' refuge during the Second World War and place of study for the celebrated poet Gerard Manley Hopkins.

It will open on Sunday from 11.30am to 4.30pm, with tours at 12pm and 2.30pm on a first come, first serve basis.

Modern architecture enthusiasts are expected to flock to a single-storey house in Balham conceived as a spiralling wall.

Wimbledon Times:

Concealed behind a brick wall, Spiral House in Culverden Road is a single-storey courtyard house designed to have minimal impact on surrounding properties.

It will open on Sunday from 10am to 1pm, with last entries at 12.30pm.

Over in Wandsworth Common, a dramatic refurbishment of a typical 1930s semi has transformed a house into a pared-back modern home.

Wimbledon Times:

Featuring a sculptural staircase which twists up through the centre of the house, 131 Nightingale Lane was designed by Daykin Marshall Studio in 2013.

The house will be open to the public on Sunday from 10am to 5pm, with tours every 20 minutes.

Celebrated as an exceptional example of the "super cinema style" of the 1930s, the Gala Bingo Hall in Tooting, formerly the Granada Cinema, will open on Sunday from 9.30am to 11.30am.

Wimbledon Times:

Don't miss a chance to see the former cinema's gothic interior by Theodore Komisarjevsky and architecture by Cecil Masey.
