This is a multi-function space for doors Headquarters. The space is including incubation office for food industry and share event space for local community. Giant Round Table integrates those different uses in one space to create new network between different type of people surrounding the table.

Axis lines of Existed building runs parallel to the front road. Furniture and different areas also do run parallel to north-south axis on Giant Round Tables located in the centre of the space. The giant round table and circuit pathway around the table are designed with different height, material, and colour. As the result, one interior space can have an aggregate of diverse places by different direction, size, function and view to select the adequate places according to condition.

Giant Round Tables plays as an intermediate between architecture and furniture with different functions like stage, table, partition, bench and loft space. This project shows us new potential of workplace as local community hub linking between different time scale, synchronized activities and different type of people.
