This project researches into the role of everyday rituals and social processes in the formation of space. In line with the given framework probing into the relation between the food and space, this study investigates various cultural patterns shaping the space around us; and resulting with the authentic places.

Versus negative aspects of contemporary food industry, the aim of this thesis was to identify significance of table (in a broader sense) and community. Through analyses of phenomena of table and community, it was adopted an idea of “food that gathers people”, as contemporary ritual or process that includes space, social context, ambient, psychological and emotional tendencies of man, relations between man and society, or system.

In terms of that, ritual represents reflection of cultural patterns that have a role in organizing and designing space. One of possible relationships between social (culturally, spiritual) tendencies and space reflects in atrium typologies, because local community seems to be profiled through way of using the inner, common yard. This project researches the potentials of spatial configurations with inner atrium, as a polygon for defining individual-collective relations and as patterns of using the space, that create a positive identity of location.
