Exploring FÁBRICA LEHMANN: Barcelona’s Hidden Creative Haven

Nestled in the heart of Barcelona's Eixample district, FÁBRICA LEHMANN is a unique creative space that exudes history and artistic innovation. Once a bustling factory, this hidden gem has been transformed into a vibrant hub for artists, designers, and creatives of all kinds. Here’s a closer look at what makes FÁBRICA LEHMANN a must-visit destination for those seeking inspiration and a taste of Barcelona's rich cultural scene.

A Brief History

FÁBRICA LEHMANN was originally established in the late 19th century by the Lehmann family, who were prominent industrialists in Barcelona. The factory was initially dedicated to the production of toys and dolls, contributing to the city’s industrial growth during that era. Over time, as the industrial landscape evolved, the factory ceased its operations and the space lay dormant for many years.

In recent decades, the abandoned factory was rediscovered and revitalized, embracing a new purpose that aligns with Barcelona’s contemporary artistic spirit. Today, FÁBRICA LEHMANN stands as a testament to the city's ability to blend its historical roots with modern creativity.

The space hosts a diverse range of studios where painters, sculptors, photographers, graphic designers, and other artists work and collaborate. Walking through the courtyard, visitors can often catch glimpses of artists at work, adding to the dynamic and inspiring atmosphere.

Unique Architecture

The architectural charm of FÁBRICA LEHMANN is another highlight that attracts visitors. The factory’s original brickwork, high ceilings, and large windows have been preserved, creating a rustic yet inviting ambiance. The courtyard, adorned with greenery and outdoor seating, serves as a communal area where artists and visitors can relax and connect.



Located at Carrer del Consell de Cent, 159, FÁBRICA LEHMANN is easily accessible from various parts of the city. While it remains a working space for artists, it welcomes visitors who are interested in exploring its creative environment. The best time to visit is during one of the many public events or open studio days, which are often advertised on their social media channels and website.
