3Space was formed in 2010 as a direct response to the increase in vacant commercial premises brought about by the financial crisis and changes in the way we work and shop. Whilst others saw the empty buildings, we saw the opportunity. We work with corporates, government and developers to unlock surplus commercial space, to drive regeneration and benefit local communities.  

We are a full service operator who have worked across the UK delivering a wide range of projects and innovative uses across office, retail, courthouses, school buildings and banks. Our current area of focus is purpose driven workspace where high growth start-ups work side by side with non-profits and experimental projects.

Our BUYGIVEWORK initiative is the first to apply the Buy One = Give One approach to property. Businesses buy space, 3Space give space away to local non-profits and experimental projects, and the result is a better workplace – one that is representative of the area whilst fostering new types of uses and technologies.

Our current positions available are listed below. If you would like to express your interest in future employment or collaboration opportunities then please send an email and covering letter to info@3space.org

Building Host

In September 2018 3Space opened London’s largest affordable workspace in Brixton.
