Village Underground Lisboa is a multi-use artistic space, put together from shipping containers and double-decker buses, located in the Portuguese capital Lisbon, or Lisboa.

The complex is currently installed at the Carris Museum, a public transport history museum. It comprises 14 shipping containers and a pair of double-decker buses arranged to form office spaces, a cafeteria and a central courtyard.

Each container in the development contains five tables aimed at start-ups, artists and other creative types, and costs patrons $197 per table per month, with electricity, WiFi and cleaning services included. Workspaces can also be rented by the hour or by the week. The development includes two double-decker buses containing cafeterias.

Eventually, the Village Underground Lisboa development will include a stage for concerts and a theater. The organizers are looking to collaborate with the London version of Village Underground, which opened in 2007 and features shipping containers as well as trains.
