Interior Zone

Definition: spaces located further than 5 m (15 ft) from the fašade, which can be either high-occupancy (accommodating a number of work spaces) or low-occupancy (circulation or general meeting areas for example). Spaces within this zone are not directly affected by loads generated by the building envelope, such as solar heat gain or heat loss.
