The building that houses Inner Space dates back to 1896 and English Heritage have recorded it as one Manchester's Grade II listed buildings. It is described in references as The Old Schoolhouse". This elegant and stately frontage has a carving above the door that not only shows the date but also the letter "V" above it, perhaps referring to Victoria. It is a well-executed building incorporating a high level of attention to detail and good architectural features, including moulded architraves, shaped gables, a pedimented doorway and large Venetian-style windows.

From 1999 till 2004 the building served as head office to the Rechabite Friendly Society, who had orginated in 1835 when a small group of men, seeing the poor social conditions of the day decided to set up a friendly society, to support members at times of sickness or death. The group, seeing the negative influence of alcohol were committed to total abstinence from alcohol, and the society members were also required to be non-drinkers. More than an alcohol-free friendly society, its' members shared a common vision of a better way to live and a truly mutual society.
