Our space is a playground for you and your colleagues

When we set out on our quests to deve­lop the very first smart­vil­la­ge con­cept in 2012 we only had a faint visi­on of how work could be impro­ved. We knew we wan­ted to do this. So we did ever­ything to make it pos­si­ble and ope­ned the first smart­vil­la­ge in 2013 all by our­sel­ves. We can proud­ly say that every hour and every Euro we inves­ted was in the end rewar­ded. We were able to wit­ness co-workers grow abo­ve and bey­ond when given the chan­ce, in an envi­ron­ment that feels right and healt­hy. We also lear­ned a lot from that first smart­vil­la­ge which we later used in our smart­vil­la­ge we (re)opened in 2018 with a new con­cept and an ope­ra­tor model (more on that later) for a busi­ness play­ground at nume­rous loca­ti­ons. Our prio­ri­ties chan­ged from cowor­king to inno­va­ti­on rooms and work­shop spaces. In August 2019 we ope­ned our second smart­vil­la­ge in Espoo, Fin­land. One step clo­ser to our very own visi­on, to bring the fun back into work for as many peop­le as pos­si­ble. We are defi­ni­te­ly exci­ted about the future.

We didn’t come to play! Or did we?

We love see­ing new ways of thin­king flou­rish and don’t dread chan­ge but embrace it. We admit some­ti­mes losing our­sel­ves in a sea of ide­as as this is our natu­re: to achie­ve by doing and lear­ning. When some­thing doesn’t work like inten­ded we adapt and chan­ge it. We stron­gly belie­ve that every pro­blem has a fit­ting solu­ti­on. The smart­vil­la­ge as you know it now is the result of years of tri­al and error using all the know­ledge we have gathe­red so far. We con­cep­tua­li­zed, play­ed and plan­ned meti­cu­lous­ly while having the time of our lives doing so.

Welcome to your playful business home!

We are con­vin­ced that a work­shop space or office is sim­ply not enough. You need a sanc­tum for deep and mea­ning­ful thought. An insti­tu­ti­on for cra­zy and con­tro­ver­si­al ide­as. Bar­racks to find com­ra­des-in-arms wil­ling to fight as a team. A lab for field tes­ting. And a play­ground to final­ly let one’s chil­dish emo­ti­ons take over. Per­fec­tio­n­ists and chao­tics, ear­ly birds and sluga­beds, the sty­lish and the sharp. Wel­co­me to your second home, wel­co­me to smart­vil­la­ge!

The smartvillage operator model

Our ope­ra­tor model offers com­pa­nies and busi­ness parks the oppor­tu­ni­ty to coope­ra­te with us and open a smart­vil­la­ge at their loca­ti­on. smart­vil­la­ge is kind of a hub for employees, cowor­kers, inno­va­ti­ve ide­as, a lot of fun and new thoughts and is con­fe­rence- and event cen­ter at the same time. You want to know more about the oppor­tu­nities and the back­ground of our ope­ra­tor model? Then just drop us a line or give us a call!
