This research focuses on night market, emphasizing both the eating style and users eating emotion. It investigates the user’s need for Taiwan tradition food as a replacement place for regular restaurant. The study presents a process, based on user requirements, for developing guidelines for night market Qualia design targeted at community, and contributes to our understanding of community’s eating preferences and the effects of this new style on eating environment. Fore factors affecting night market qualia design are identified and discussed; these guidelines can be categorized into tree principles of design dimensions. Some ideas for night market qualia design are verification, and finally, a new design dimensions based on Taipei city style is proposed. Future research could apply the principles to other groups of night market users based on the concept of design dimensions.
