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.
We believe we can make a difference on the present and future of our planet. Don’t you? Imagine if all of us were committed to do so – it would be powerful.
As individuals, the best we can do is to spread the word and do better day by day. That’s why we compiled 57 steps to help you, and remind us, on how to be more sustainable on a daily basis.
Lisbon is an open-air gallery. Not just for its tile-covered façades, the traditional cobblestone designs and all the majestic historic monuments but also for its street art. Nowadays, cities are covered with all kind of graffities – and we are lucky enough to admit that Lisbon has more than its fair of really good ones.

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.
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.
Samesame believes in an eco-culture, based on values such as sharing, community, creativity, respect, and sustainability. For these reasons, we could not turn a blind eye to what is currently happening in the natural world around us. We are committed to reversing this existential and planetary crisis, by finding sustainable and long-term solutions.

An analysis on how accurate were the 1900’s predictions for the 21st century on transportation, energy, technology in our personal lives, cities and finally housing (spoiler alert: the co-living lifestyle was kinda of predicted).
