In order for Office Spaces to understand how a building is organized, it makes use of the terms "zone" and "cluster". Using the illustration below, this article will explain the meaning and use of both.
- The hierarchy of a location goes from
Location Zone Cluster Desk.
- Each location has multiple zones (For example: "Room 2.10" or "Area 4 - Marketing")
- Each of those zones can consist of multiple clusters. A cluster are multiple desks that are connected to each other. Clusters of only two desks exist as well as clusters with over 10+ desks.
As can be seen in the following image. This location consists of two zones. (namely, Green and Purple)
The green zone consists of 3 clusters. The purple zone consists of 4 clusters.
All the clusters consist of 4 desks. The numbering is clockwise as the configuration of desks should always be either consequently clockwise of counter-clockwise.
