- Our building at 336 is built in the ‘brutalist style’.
- It was originally built in 1967 to be a warehouse, but never used for that purpose.
- In 1971 it was converted for Coutts Bank and used as their computer centre. It was designed to keep people out.
- The building was converted yet again in 1984 to be office space and a conference centre with money from the European Union and Lambeth Council. This time it was designed to be accessible and to let people in!
- 336 was formally opened by HRH Diana, Princess of Wales, in June 1985.
- After its conversion four disability charities moved into the building:
- Lambeth ACCORD (now operating as we are 336)
- GLAD (Greater London Action on Disability)
- VOCAL (Voluntary Organisation for Communication and Language)
- SKILL (National Bureau for Disabled Students)
Of these, only Lambeth Accord continues in existence.
- We were once considered a very cool venue for raves. We’ve grown up since then. We now host arts and theatre activities.
