Coworking in a creative and futuristic environment

VULX has original coworking spaces with a unique architecture made of shipping containers recycled into offices, a recording studio (Metalbox.pt), and double decker buses converted into a restaurant (Buzz Lisboeta) and a conference/meeting room (Meeting Bus).

This coworking space is ideal for the creative, cultural, artistic and innovative individuals or companies that know the advantages of working in a place with a creative vibe. Whether you are a freelancer, a startup or an entrepreneur, you will have plenty of chances to network at one of the many events, workshops or exhibitions held on a regular basis.

You can access to your office 24/7 and all the spaces have fast Internet and air-conditioner.

VULX is a landmark on Lisbon’s architecture landscape and home to a creative community in the city.

Recently we were considered one of “The World’s 4 Most Unusual Coworking Spaces” by Forbes, and the 10th place (1st in Portugal) in “The 50 Best Co-Working Spots In Europe” by Big 7 Travel.

Known as Lucas Pinto Amor or Luca for his calligraphy work, where he defies authority for the abuse of power. To escape the conventional approach, as a tattoo artist he makes original designs, using the abstract and the geometric but most of all, he relies on the blind confidence of his clients to tattoo their bodies.

Since 2018 Luca has its headquarters at container 7 of Village Underground Lisbon. Where he sells and exposes his artwork and welcomes his tattoo clients.

One Step Forward  |  Container 8

Established in 2013 with a unique concept and mindset – to be one step forward. That is the motto and inspiration for every designed piece of this clothing brand.

With a notable urban aesthetic, one step forward combines comfort and quality with original designs, always thinking about the little details that make a piece of clothing unique.

It lives between streetwear and high fashion. A limbo, some may call it, but not one made from indecision, one made for breaking down barriers and thinning lines.

Rogato Bags  |  Container 4

Italian sustainable design based in Lisbon

These bags distinguish themselves by the use of various recycled materials, such as military surplus, vintage leather jackets and denim. Any material that otherwise would end up in landfills and is suitable to use in bags, qualifies for a new life as a bag. Also characteristic are the contemporary, basic design and the attention to detail. This demonstrates the traditional Italian artisan craftmanship of the maker.

Rogato bags is the label of the Italian designer and architect Giuseppe Rogato, who lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal. From his concern about the environment and interest in sustainable solutions, he started designing bags from reused and leftover materials several years ago.

For every bag Giuseppe Rogato selects combinations of materials, so that no two copies of the same model are the same.

At container 4 you can find not only the workshop but also an open store.
