THE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
A project for the well-being of people and respect for nature
of the new buildings’ construction is the result of long reflection, acquired
knowledge and meaningful encounters.
This project is the answer to questions concerning ecological issues; it brings together agriculture, health, and tourism and contributes to the economic development of the region.
The accommodation structure allows us to carry out our mission in symbiosis with nature, animals, and human beings.
Our fields of activity are based on 18 sectors, as described below. While some sectors are already active, others will be soon.

« Bovino »
The main building
The Votre Cercle de Vie’s construction
project of the buildings is located in the centre of the village, in the middle
of 20 hectares of farmland. It consists of two buildings surrounded by a park
and areas dedicated to bio-ecological gardens.
The 6-floors main building "Bovino" will accommodate:
the biogas plant
the underground car park
« Planto »
The secondary building "Planto" will be composed of 4 floors, including:
the organic and bulk shop
general medicine and naturopathic surgery
Preserving the harmony of our landscapes requires
an organic and traditional architectural design.
The architectural concepts are inspired by Feng Shui and the order established by nature (sacred geometry) is used for the design; the "Bovino" building will emerge from the hill and will completely merge with its surroundings.
This blend of organic architecture (green roofs) and the traditional architectural style of the Pays-d'Enhaut - facades covered with shingles (small wooden tiles) - will fit perfectly into the heart of nature.
high level of pollution is generated by the hype of new constructions. It thus seems
fundamental to create as little pollution as possible for the construction of
With this in mind, the majority of materials to be used will be natural and local: regional solid wood, clay, natural stones, mineral paints, and plant roofs. It is planned to collaborate with local companies.

you share the same ideals for the future of our children, and if you have the
same sustainable vision for our environment, we urge you to participate

Esprit Ensemble Fondation
Ensemble is a public charitable foundation founded in 2018 with headquarters in
Château-d'Œx. Established to support the project of Votre Cercle de Vie, the
foundation will be the exclusive owner of the buildings that will be constructed.
The durability of the place will thus be ensured.
Supported by the Canton of Vaud and the Confederation, this project will rely on private investments. The search for fundings is currently in progress.
