From small offices for 10 workers to massive offices for 200, a variety of workspace map templates are available. Looking to party? Choose one of our party rooms, a beachside map, or a secret house in the woods—you can create a wide variety of Spaces just by using the many ZEP templates.
If you want to be creative, you can design your own Space by clicking Start with an Empty Map. This will take you to the Map Editor where you can use various tiles and objects to create a custom map.
You can purchase fun maps created by various creators from the ZEP Asset Store and create your Space with the purchased maps!
