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.
