Smart homes, smart buildings and smart cities
The Internet of Things—whereby everyday objects are connected to the Internet—promises to transform the way we live. In 2020, there will be an estimated 50 billion connected objects in the world, giving rise to smart buildings and more generally smart cities. Taking this shift into account is becoming an essential part of any long-term real estate strategy.
The boom of connected objects in residential buildings is an opportunity to increase well-being and efficiency. New smart services will simplify occupants’ daily lives by improving security, comfort and domestic energy performance. In the near future, we can imagine a world of smart cities in which services such as road maintenance, garbage collection and energy consumption become more data-driven, adaptive and intelligent.

Flexible and agile buildings
The increasing source of information allows us to better understand the daily habits of residents and how they interact with the buildings and spaces around them. As a leading player in the commercial and residential real estate sector, BNP Paribas Real Estate has seized this value-creating opportunity by creating a “Living Lab” in which we test the latest innovative services before offering them to our clients. Our ambition is to improve occupiers’ quality-of-life and the well-being of users. It is no longer simply a question of designing and constructing buildings but of reimagining living spaces.
At BNP Paribas Real Estate, we surround ourselves with an ecosystem of partners—including start-ups, innovative companies, researchers and sociologists to fully understand technological and societal changes. An excellent example of this approach is our Ternes-Villiers project within the framework of the "Réinvent Paris" competition. The forward-thinking project brings to life our vision of a multi-strata city, materialised by several interconnected buildings built in wood, complete with an overhead garden and green landscape on each floor.
