Nowadays, especially in urban context that is supported by high technology, people prefer being freelancer or entrepreneur as their alternative works to live (survive). Being entrepreneur is chosen because it can be done with low-cost leasing, and they also have not to be bounded with certain company. That type of works usually done in mobile and do not need special large workspace or office. But, they still need space to support and facilitate their work in meeting with client, such as co-working space. In co-working space, people can work independently in a fluid space and stress-free co-working style. They rent workspace together in one room but in different work and different activity, such as freelancer, entrepreneur or startup. In this case, office have been shifting meaning and function. It was semi-public space that only used by the employment of current company, but now it changes become public space that everyone can use. This research is initial research which will be focused on co-working space in Central Jakarta and model-design analysis of workspaces. This research also aims to see how the influence of the working activity and working behavior pattern of urban society in Central Jakarta that have implemented in interior design model of co-working space. This also aims to see the dynamics of cultural change in urban society, both for practical purposes and also for contributing to the cultural thinking in Indonesia and to interior design education in particular.
