samesame is the first creative co-living space in Lisbon founded by a locally based team. The project is building a creative and sustainable neighborhood in the capital of Portugal: a space made up of a coliving home, samesame, two creative and artistic coworking spaces, Beco and Esquina, and our own sustainable restaurant and cultural event venue, Insitu.
samesame was brought into being by our urge to build a place based on creativity and community and that could provide a different way of living. In addition to establishing a place where people could rest, create and belong/linger, we wanted to have our personal values reflected in the entire project – sustainability, community, respect, diversity, sharing, local and circular economy, art and culture – in the hopes of becoming a viable solution to some of the biggest challenges we face today.
samesame is an old traditional building remodeled by a young Portuguese team of architects, designed to guarantee the best resting conditions for the co-livers. It can host you in shared or private apartments. One thing is for sure, the room and bathroom are entirely yours!

samesame is a place of creation, where people and initiatives come together to have a powerful and positive impact on society.
Thus, to accelarate the effect, two co-working spaces were raised within the samesame creative block – Esquina and BECO.
However, for those looking to create in a more private atmosphere, the desks inside the co-living can be used at any time.
A nonconformist atelier designed for plastic artists, currently hosting 5 residents. Not only it is a working space, it also is a door open gallery that hosts monthly exhibitions and workshops. Available space for new residents.
Facilities: A shared studio with desks and racks; 1 private studio; 1 darkroom; 1 silkscreen table; 1 lightbox; 1 storage room; 1 kitchenette; 2 bathrooms

A micro and tailored hub for professionals within the creative industries. To stimulate a synergic effect between creatives, the space only counts 25 work seats. As a creativity agent, BECO activates exhibitions, concerts, talks & movie nights to empower talent and encourage the sharing of ideas. Working desks available.

Creative Development: workshops; talks & networking events
Cultural: curated artistic events; tours to outside galleries

Insitu is the bar, restaurant & event venue right around the corner of the co-living, a place between Earth and Sky. Away from chaos, where nature dictates the pace.
Where lingering is praised, because everything takes time.
A place to be by the table, living by the rhythm of the seasons.
Daily, Insitu uses the best natural ingredients available to serve both the co-livers and outside visitors. By night, the place closes for exclusive dinners and co-living events.
Since rooting is so relevant for Insitu, portuguese is the mother language of the place. Check instagram and contact us in case you want more information.
samesame is located at the multicultural neighbourhood of Mouraria.
A mark in the portuguese history– where Moors lived before the portuguese reconquest and where Fado was born. Mouraria serves food from all over the world, hosts a mini “Chinatown”, owns the most beautiful tiled façades and the most beautiful views over Lisbon. The sense of community is inherent to the neighbourhood and the thriving artistic atmosphere is also becoming part of its DNA. There is no way to get bored around the Mouraria.
