@Zakaria can you provide more details? What makes these two zones unique? Are they both served by the same HVAC system?

EnergyPlus can simulate multiple Space within a Zone. This feature began in V9.6 and is evolving. Each Space can now have it's own People, Lights, Equipment objects (and other attributes). See InputOutputReference documentation for Space. Also review InputOutputReference section Specifying Applicable Zone(s) or Space(s).
