The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber without, was five cubits: and that which was left was the place of the side chambers that were within.
And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five cubits round about.
I prefer the KJV translation, but here it is completely incomprehensible, so if you cannot read the Masoretic text, then at least NASB.
The thickness of the outer wall of the side chambers was five cubits. But the free space between the side chambers belonging to the temple
(Ezekiel 41:9 — NASB)
The doorways of the side chambers toward the free space consisted of one doorway toward the north and another doorway toward the south; and the width of the free space was five cubits all around.
(Ezekiel 41:11 — NASB)
The "free space" means that there are no pillars that support the upper floors, this is not a gallery.
The "free space" in Ezekiel's Temple.
It could not build in antiquity. From this it follows that Ezekiel saw the Temple built on modern technology. The length of the console, taking into account the extension to 1 cubit in relation to the previous floor, is equal to 6 cubits, this is 2 meters 88 cm. This can be built if you use metal or reinforced concrete structures. At the time of Ezekiel they could not build like this.
