[EnergyPlus_Support] AirflowNetwork and dividing a large open office to multiple zones

There is a model in EnergyPlus that I must work on, in that a large open office is divided into some subzones, with the expectation that the airflow network simulates the air flow through the internal openings.

I have read in the Input-Output reference that "you should not try to divide a high space, such as an atrium, into subzones separated by artificial horizontal surfaces that have cracks or openings with the expectation that AirflowNetwork will give you a realistic temperature in each subzone and/or a realistic air flow between subzones" 

Now, I would like to know if it is acceptable in a large office, to be divided with some artificial vertical surfaces, with the expectation that EnergyPlus can predict air temperature in different part of the large zone.
