Your stand is situated between 2 pillars (see picture below - ) which the pillar is partly within. If you were thinking of making a floor etc then these pillars would need to be taken into considerations.


The pillars have a diameter of 40cm and are located in the corners of your space, the annotated photo along with the plan should explain this.
