In architecture, a partitions is a wall or other division that separates spaces within a building. Partitions can be permanent, such as walls, or temporary, such as portable screens or dividers. They can be used to create separate rooms or areas within a larger space, or to provide privacy or division between different functions.
Partitions can be made of a variety of materials, including wood, drywall, glass, and metal. They can be structural, providing support for the building, or non-structural, serving only to divide space.
In interior design, partitions are often used to define and organize space within a room or to create separate areas for different activities or functions.
