Welcome to samesame’s world.

Here you get to know us a bit better: about us and about our creative co-livers, about the way we co-live and co-work in our creative block and finally about our ideas on art, how we see the socio-cultural shifts and whatever-we-feel that is shaping the world.

How to make your room feel yours in a co-living?

 

In a co-living, your room is where you can express your identity by adding details reflecting your personality. As a matter of fact, details make us who we are: from the way we cut our hair, the music we listen to, to the life path we chose to follow – and the place we sleep is certainly an extension of who we are.

On a sustainable path to the future

 

We have been working hard to substantially decrease our carbon footprint, by introducing many different structural and lifestyle changes, such as the products we use, to the waste we produce. These changes apply to all apartments at SAMESAME, our food and event space INSITU and both our co-working spaces, BECO and ESQUINA.
