IBSA House is a large combined office/production and storage facility located in the heart of residential development in Mill Hill, NW7. Formerly the location of the Carl Zeiss Optical works from around 1912, this five acre site was purchased and rebuilt in the early 1990’s to serve as a printing and office facility to supplement Watch Tower House, some 200m north along The Ridgeway. Currently the building offers a total of 19,123sqm of internal floorspace, with an extant approval for an additional 3,233sqm consisting of a three storey extension to the north-west wing at first, second and roof level, and a three storey extension to the south wing at second, third and roof level.

IBSA House sits just behind the main frontage of The Ridgeway and the site extends to just over 5 acres. The main entrance block has a height of some six storeys with commanding views across London down to the south. The property is just outside the edge of Green Belt, and also outside of any conservation areas. Within the immediate vicinity of IBSA House lies Watch Tower House, which is also featured on this website here. To the south down Bittacy Hill lies Mill Hill East underground station, providing easy access to London. To the north along The Ridgeway, there are a number of renowned private schools and also the family friendly ‘Adam & Eve’ gastropub.
Sharing the southern boundary is the Millbrook Park residential development. This new urban area will eventually consist of over 2,000 new homes and supporting infrastructure. The area immediately surrounding IBSA House is characterised by substantial detached houses in a traditional surburban setting. IBSA House sits back behind this streetscene to provide character and interest. Just over 4 miles to the south lies Hampstead Heath, described as one of London’s most loved green open spaces. The Heath has some of the highest vantage points in London, and a remarkable range of natural habitats which include wide expanses of grassland and ancient woodland.
