Text description provided by the architects. The hive of small enterprises is located in the heart of the site La Tossée in Tourcoing (North of France). The program brings together a hive of innovative textile companies and a 450-spaces-silo parking. The two programs are combined within a single entity.
The medium-term mutability of the parking in a tertiary program is made possible by a peripheral-honeycomb-structure releasing trays of all bearing points. The project builds on both flagships of the industrial revolution and textile industry to federate a context carried by a blend of history and innovation.
Product Description. - The filling of the cast-in-place concrete cells is achieved by a two-level curtain wall façade consisting of a frame of the WICONA - MECANO 2 range, with WICLINE 65 hinged windows.
The filling of the non-glazed parts is made with insulating sandwich panels composed of an exterior face of ALUCOBOND - Natural Line 401 and an inside face made of rough galvanized sheet, separated by a rock wool of 30mm.
