Same Same Living
Our mission is to trigger our community’s creativity by providing them the necessary means of time, space and environment.
There has been a huge shift in the way people want to live. It is more and more about experiences over stability, disruption over tradition, collaboration over competition. This shift created a whole “co-movement” that has been changing how people live.
The rise of co-living projects makes the greatest sense as part of the millennial generation – set on flexibility, sharing community, detachment of possessions and intelligent resource management.
A co-living is shaped conveniently to meet the needs of a community living together. This way of living encourages to seek experiences and practice knowledge sharing. Becoming a co-liver unlocks many lifestyles possibilities and brings together like-minded people on the same journey.
Inspired by this new mindset, the samesame co-living idea came as an answer to this generation’s call and by our urge to have a positive impact on the world. In addition to establishing a place where our community would feel fulfilled, creatively stimulated and at home, we wanted to have our personal values reflected in the entire project – community, creativity, sharing, diversity, sustainability, art and culture – in the hopes of becoming a viable solution to some of the biggest challenges we face today.
After a long time of crafting, samesame was born in 2019 by the hands of three Lisbon-based friends: Gonçalo Caldeira, Filipa Meirelles e Gonçalo Lopes. Starting with an old traditional portuguese building and with the collaboration of a young professional team of architects, a lisbon-based creative co-living came to life in one of the most multicultural areas of Lisbon. Now we are a team of 5: Gonçalo, Filipa, Maria, Zala e António.
