Question about opened surfaces (garage)

Hello everyone, how's everybody? So I'm doing the simulation in a clinic and I have a question:

the clinic has two floors and at the bottom, has a garage. This garage is open on the sides and I do not know if I create a thermal zone for it or leave it empty.

I will attach some photos with floor plans and geometry model in sketchup to try to explain my situation

Thanks!
