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. 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 mul­ti­ple 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 exci­ted about the future and rea­dy for much, much more to come!

We didn’t come to play! Or did we?

We love see­ing new ways of thin­king flou­rish and don’t dread the chan­ge. We rather embrace it. 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 while 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 the deep and slow thin­king. 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 chaos­pi­lots, 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 form a coope­ra­ti­on with us by ope­ning a new smart­vil­la­ge loca­ti­on at their pre­mi­ses. Smart­vil­la­ge is a hub for employees, cowor­kers, inno­va­ti­ve ide­as, a lot of fun and new thoughts, and it is a con­fe­rence- and event cen­ter at the same time. You want to know more about the oppor­tu­nities and the back­ground of our ope­ra­tor model? Just drop us a line or give us a call – we’ll tell you more about the pos­si­bi­li­ties.

When will we see each other?
