Shamengo Villas

La Villa Shamengo, une école du futur ouverte à tous pour apprendre un nouvel art de vivre autour de 4 valeurs : prendre soin de soi, créer dans l’éthique, préserver la planète et s’engager pour les autres

“Shamengo Villa” is a novel, accessible and reproducible concept that responds to the technological, economic, social and environmental changes of the XXI century.

Located in or around city centres, these smart villas will be built by the members of our community and adapted to the needs of the local ecosystem using the innovations of the most outstanding environmental and social entrepreneurs on the planet: Shamengo pioneers.

Favouring green building practices, energy-water-food autonomy and waste recycling, these villas are designed to become places of inspiration, sharing and knowledge transmission.

They represent a creative disruption in our relationship to education, information, business, the economy, leisure time, and more generally our way of living together. They are places to learn in a hands-on and engaging way how to care for mind and body, create with a conscience, protect the environment, and take action to help others.



To experience the world of tomorrow

These "hubs of the positive economy" represent a new way to use space, time and social interaction.

Shamengo villas include:

  • A “smart” fully connected model home.
  • A Fab Lab encouraging a "Do It Yourself” approach.
  • International co-working spaces.
  • A modular conference room with TV.
  • An incubator reserved for pioneers.
  • A suspended mini-farm and an organic restaurant.
  • An eco-lodge from dorm rooms to 5 star accommodation
  • Social housing integrated in this virtuous eco-system.

Unique in the world, these smart villas are open to all who share the values of our community: school children, students, families, employees and business leaders, philanthropists, ethical investment funds, NGOs, political representatives …

The length of a visit to a villa ranges from a few hours (school visits) to an event (targeted meetings and conferences), a weekend (family stays), a few days (business seminar) a few weeks (world travellers looking for a co-working space), a few months (incubation for young businesses, academic research) to several years (personnel living in social housing).

 

In cities around the world

We envision Shamengo villas on every continent. The first Shamengo Villa will be built in Bordeaux in 2018.

Do you want to make this project your own?

Individuals, businesses, schools, foundations, institutions... We all have a role to play to make these spaces happen!

Launch at the COP21

 

On this momentous occasion, we’re launching our new Shamengo challenge, which has the seal of approval from the COP21 and the City of Paris. 

The construction of a 150 m2 temporary villa in the Civil Society space opposite the site of negotiations at Le Bourget will be a tangible preview of our smart villas. From November 30 to December 11, visitors to the Shamengo villa will be invited to launch the adventure with us.

On 3 December, the Economic Social and Environmental Council, a French parliamentary body, will officially launch the concept of Shamengo Villa with the announcement of the candidate cities.

Un living lab ludo-éducatif inédit

Véritable laboratoire-école du futur construit avec des innovations vertes, sociales et digitales d’exception

La Villa Shamengo a pour objectif d’initier le grand public, les scolaires, les étudiants et les professionnels d’entreprises à un nouvel art de vivre. 

Comment ? En permettant à tous de venir s'immerger quelques heures, quelques jours et pour certains quelques mois dans cette "utopie en marche" où la frontière entre lieu d’habitation, de villégiature, de travail, de rencontres, de loisirs et d’études s’estompe.

Dans la Villa, tous les actes du quotidien deviennent propices à la découverte, à la réflexion et à l’apprentissage de nos 4 valeurs philosophiques... que ce soit dans la serre jardin, à table, au lit, aux toilettes, sous la douche mais aussi dans l’atelier de valorisation des déchets ou l’espace zen, à travers des visites interactives, des ateliers DIY, des masters class de pionniers, mais aussi les services d’une table d’hôte, d’un éco-refuge  et d’un concept store original.

Le tout pour mieux appréhender les principes de l’éco-conception, de l’économie circulaire, collaborative, numérique, se former aux métiers de demain et prendre en main son destin.  

Envie de rejoindre l’aventure ?

Particuliers, entreprises, écoles, fondations, institutions… Nous avons besoin de vos idées et talents, de votre énergie et bonne humeur pour faire naître la première Villa Shamengo !
