L'Etape is an original project for a citizens' lab combining a co-working facility, an activities hall and projects for the village of Argentière within the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc municipality.
This building used to be the Argentière Guides House. It is brimming with charm, character and history and was definitely worth giving it a new lease of life. It is ideally located in the village centre and on the main route through the Valley. An association was formed to develop an ambitious and innovative project to boost the village’s cultural, social and sports offering, and to breathe new life into an important part of Argentière’s heritage.
All year round, a venue for sports and cultural activities. This brightly lit space offers a surface area of 50 m2 on the first floor of the building.
In addition to the activities organised at the venue by the village’s various associations all year round, the other goal is to support long-term projects "beyond the walls", out in the village of Argentière.
Co-working, shared office space
The ground floor of the building is home to a shared office space where professionals in the village can come and work. Some of these co-workers are directly involved in running the association, sharing their know-how and expertise.
