I'm writing a paper and I have to describe what a certain work environment looks like. However, I don't know the proper term for this type of office layout. Surely you don't just call it a block office. I searched a lot, but wasn't able to find anything on this.
It is an open space with cubicle setting:
Тhe cubicle is a partially enclosed workspace in an office which is separated from neighboring workspaces by partitions that are usually 5–6 feet (1.5–1.8 m) tall.
Its purpose is to isolate office workers and managers from the sights and noises of an open workspace so that they may concentrate with fewer distractions.
Cubicles are composed of modular elements such as walls, work surfaces, overhead bins, drawers, and shelving, which can be configured depending on the user's needs.
A slightly different take than Mike's
Cubalcatraz (or Cubicaltraz as UD has it).
Cubicaltraz is a reference to the prizon like atmosphere that pervades the business office and cubicalvilles everywhere. A combination of Alcatraz and cubical.
