The theme of this project was Texas Hold’em and was a design project for a new commercial space combining board games with gourmet food and a capsule hotel. The first floor was designed as a business area in which the main linear flow was designed at the center. The front part near the entrance was planned as the reception counter and dining area, while the center and rear part was designed as the board game playing area. The multifunctional space of the intermediate layer would provide hotel services. The base color of the whole room used a fashionable black, mending it with baked paint iron structure and interior lighting design to interpret this slightly raw, fashionable and themed space. Looking at its environment as a whole, steel structures cross connected with one another like the London Bridge, while large heart-moving poker cards float above our heads, suiting its business direction. At the entrance, the designer used space connecting skills to connect the counter and countertop with an extended arc. Multiple visual layers are then created by introducing the main flow with a slanted countertop. Stone culture wall using pines and intentional roughness were used to create the image of the entrance and exit. To build up the spatial layers, the dining area was raised to a platform two steps above the ground. Moveable desks and chairs were installed so that the place can change quickly between the regular table for four or putting table together. At the same time, a dart arena was also installed to make it more entertaining. The center part poker card arena will have the largest space by installing four large Texas Hold’em tables that can accommodate ten guests each. Large screens are also available for viewers to watch the games. Moreover, a circular complex service counter is also planned at the arena area to provided services within the shortest flow.
