Approved document B, Fire Safety, Volume 1 Dwelling houses, defines a ‘room’ as:

‘An enclosed space within a building that is not used solely as a circulation space. (The term includes not only conventional rooms, but also walk-in cupboards that are not fittings, and large spaces such as warehouses and auditoria. The term does not include voids such as ducts, ceiling voids and roof spaces.)
