Multidisciplinary workspace and an interesting 

creative ecosystem

CRU rents various work stations for sharing and collaborating, mainly directed to creative activities.

The concept of coworking allows for optimized management of both spaces and resources that results in lowcost work stations. In this way, we guarantee basic services and comfort.

Our monthly memberships free you of fixed and heavy duties such as payment of deposits, water, electricity and internet contracts that usually imply costs of installation and fidelity, etc. You can then focus solely on what is really important and free yourself to react to the challenges that come up.

Cru offers a multidisciplinary workspace and an interesting creative ecosystem. You can expect an informal and chill environment where the living together of professionals of different areas is in and of itself boosting the creation of synergies.

At CRU we focus on maintaining a cohesive community that stays open to all who would want to join it. Collaboration is the keyword and each coworker represents one important contribution on a professional and social level for the bigger picture.

CRU is located at the heart of Porto’s art block — Bombarda Art District — which is an epicenter of a creative cluster, in a very accessible and central zone, surrounded by all kinds of markets and services.
