The SMR/SMI storage maintenance site project, located north of Rosny-sous-Bois, occupies an industrial site, Montgolfier, near the railroad tracks. Located at the interval of lines 15 East and 11, between the station of Bondy and Rosny-Bois-Perrier, the site is a neuralgic point of the network.

The main building of the industrial program runs on the railway beams and includes the two maintenance halls. Organized on two levels with double height spaces, the work areas are lit by a zenith light filtered by sheds equipped with occultation systems. The project emphasizes the industrial aspect of the railway halls and is inspired by the classic pattern of factories. However, bathed in natural light and dressed with reflective materials, the site radiates like a carved "diamond" placed in the heart of the industrial zone.
