English term or phrase: circulation space, balance area
Circulation space – the square footage in a building which provides people with access to the all of the spaces within the building. Circulation refers to the way people move through and interact with a building. Structures such as elevators, escalators, and staircases are often referred to as circulation elements, as they are positioned and designed to optimize the flow of people through a building, sometimes through the use of a core.

Balance area – the floor area provided as part of the gross internal area to enable the building to function. For example:

* corridors and other circulation areas of a permanent nature (e.g. fire corridors, smoke lobbies, etc.)
* internal open-sided balconies or similar
* internal structural walls, walls enclosing excluded areas, columns, piers, chimney breasts, vertical ducts and other projections
* stairways and stairwells (and voids over)
* entrance lobbies (where the function is solely or primarily for entry/circulation)
* foyers (where the function is solely or primarily for entry/circulation)
* atria with clear height above, measured at base level only (where the function is solely or primarily for entry/circulation)
* lifts
* permanent lift lobbies, permanent lift rooms, liftwells and lifts (and voids over) etc.
