Update: our Production Centre

Perhaps you have read our previous posts about the production centre we call home in the neighborhood of Ramalde. For the past months, we have conducted refurbishment work and organisational setup to prepare this production centre to host like-minded people who are interested in sustainable building and making activities.

Furthermore, the space organizes social activities for the neighbourhood and we work in tight collaboration with the local associations to offer popular cultural formats twisted with critical content. We proudly present you the newly inaugurated production centre, also known as Co-Lateral.  

In the last two months we have been preparing the essential spaces (co-working, co-living, co-building) for habitation. Apart from getting the full team’s engagement, we also organised metal and wood workshops as part of the renovation. The workshops attracted interested people from all backgrounds to learn the basic skills in wood and metal works. We are very proud to transform the former Antigo Patronato building to a creative hub for sustainable building.

At this moment the co-working space and the wood & metal workshop are fully prepared for people to use. The co-living residence will soon be finished in the next month. We are looking for creative makers that share similar interests in sustainable and durable making and building to rent our facilities. Moreover, the building contains a large event space and a meeting room available for events.

For more details about the production centre check out the page “Co-Lateral” on our website. Soon we will have a new website solely dedicated to the production space. Stay posted on our agenda for upcoming workshops and events!

Address: Rua direita de Francos, 1024, 4250-192 Porto, Portugal
