International House Workspace
Providing workspace for new and growing businesses, social enterprises and charities, with a focus on design, creativity and innovation for 5 years.
For the next five years, meanwhile use specialists 3Space will re-use and reimagine the Lambeth Council-owned International House on Canterbury Crescent in Brixton, pending the building’s likely redevelopment. The project will provide space for new and growing businesses, social enterprises and charities, with a focus on design, creativity and innovation. It will feature 3Space’s “BuyGiveWork” scheme, which involves giving space away to social enterprises and community groups alongside providing space that is paid for by commercial businesses. This means that there is dedicated space for different types of businesses and organisations and an expectation that all occupiers will make an active contribution to Brixton’s vibrant community.
Engagement with local people, groups and businesses will help inform plans for the building and where possible, match available space to local need, with workshops, open days, and other events to be held at International House.

By September 2019, when fully occupied, this exciting project will have created space for 850 jobs in central Brixton. After the five years, International House has been earmarked for redevelopment as part of the Brixton Central masterplan. Work on the long-term planning for this site will begin later in the year. Redevelopment will create commercial space for the future and the ambition is that businesses that develop and grow at International House will be able to graduate into new business spaces after the 5 years.
