Text description provided by the architects. Located at an alley in the heart of Taipei City, A Table is an innovative private kitchen and bar that incorporates new functions and energy into the design. With the six-meter long solid wood table as the heart of the design, the spaces are placed and aligned at a 45 degree angle to the center of the table, forming the front yard, backyard, kitchen, sofa area, and other spaces.

All spaces are arranged at 45-degree angles to create a triangular space. Inspired by the veranda of a traditional Japanese style living space, the entrance is setback to form a front yard that creates a transitional point between the street and building, increasing the privacy. The thin metal grid façade along the building becomes a playful division. Following along the concrete steps, you see the shadows of the trees gently cast on the ground, with a golden arrow embedded in the ground pointing towards the entrance. Behind the brewed heavy wooden door lies a surprise ready to be discovered.

The highlight of the dining experience lies within the central hard wood table that extends a person’s vision from the front yard to the end where a tree is planted beneath the skylight. The dining area and the space above are also arranged at an angle, formulating the double-height seating area on the right-hand side.

The foundation of the bar is pure black, acting as a platform to showcase the different types of drinks. Stainless steel encompasses the kitchen and washroom, responding to and reflecting its surrounding greenery. The seating area is composed of concrete walls, a suspended circular light, and a fluted glass window that playfully absorb the streetlights, bringing in a raw and refreshing outdoor atmosphere.

It can be formal, and it can be casual. It is the interior, and it is the exterior. It can be a feast, and it can be experimental. Enjoy the unique experience of crossing from one space to the next at A Table.
