Tetrarc Architects stand behind the design of the Hub Créatic project, in Nantes, a building designed to house young companies dedicated to developing new digital applications. Behind its bright yellow walls, the building brings together around 70 start-ups, offering them a challenging work environment, housing under the same roof an endless number of creative minds, fostering synergies between projects and productivity. In the Hub Créatic, architecture and innovation work in harmony, with the building’s structure reflecting its purpose and the importance, in Nantes, of industry excellence in the field of new information and communication technologies, with some 700 companies supplying somewhere around 18,000 jobs.
Built in the heart of the La Chantrerie campus, comprising public and private higher education institutions, the new building strives to reflect the hive of activity taking place inside it through honeycomb-shaped windows, recalling the intense productivity of bee hives.
