The factory and housing buildings have been turned into open spaces to accommodate shops, restaurants and offices. This indoors vitality overflows to the terraces and living spaces. The inner street of the enclosure provides the most vivid experience of this informal post-industrial atmosphere. Made up of spaces that are the result of successive interventions, it offers several possibilities of use, allowing the coexistence and mixture of such diverse activities.
Not only the characteristics of the LX Factory hub, but also those of the area where it is located, Alcântara, both forge the strong identity of this place. An important area in the development of the city by the riverside, marked by historical events, today it is an area of urban conversion. We are currently witnessing a regeneration in the standards of living in this neighbourhood, thanks to its charm, proximity and strong potential, as it is turning into a new centrality.
