We examine the acceptability of the thermal environment to office workers using data recorded with the Ostracon voting device. Although temporal changes in the overall indoor thermal environment were seemingly small, the spatial distribution of the thermal environment changed. Unacceptable votes in the middle of the thermal environment occurred regardless of the perimeter thermal environment, suggesting that temperature was less relevant to acceptability in the middle of the thermal environment.
