To me a true 'laboratory' has controlled environmental conditions,
usually temperature is tightly controlled, the better labs have humidity
control probably not as tight.
They may have other things controlled too - such as radio interference,
A software, art or architectural design laboratory would not meet these
conditions. The key being that the control is tighter (narrower)
environmental control than, say for example, an office environment.
