    It depends on where you work. If you work at the office it's office indeed. And if I work at school (hospital, factory, garage, post- office, etc) it can't be called "office".

    so office is not just room in the workplace. The workplace itself can be called office.

    Re: at work

    Here's what dictionary.com has to offer.

    office

    1. a room, set of rooms, or building where the business of a commercial or industrial organization or of a professional person is conducted.

    Ex: the main office of an insurance company; a doctor's office.

    2. a room assigned to a specific person or a group of persons in a commercial or industrial organization.

    Ex: Her office is next to mine.

    3. a business or professional organization.

    Ex: He went to work in an architect's office.

    4. the staff or designated part of a staff at a commercial or industrial organization.

    Ex: The whole office was at his wedding.

    All the best.
