Second floor or Mezzanine

Second floor or Mezzanine by Rudy Girón

As I mentioned before in Casa Antigüeña: The Attic, the building codes in La Antigua Guatemala prohibit new construction of two-story houses (wink, wink). They say nothing of really high ceilings in single story homes.

So what would you call this space, single story with really high ceiling, a mezzanine, an attic or simply a second floor?
