Extend the coverage of LoraWAN using single channel gateway?

Assuming I have a full 8-channel gateway (RAK831) installed on the top of a high rise building and I want to extend the coverage into the indoor areas (like office space) of the high rise building, is that possible to build something fairly low cost (like a Heltec ESP32) to achieve that? Or I have to have another separate gateway installed on each level of the building?

We’ve got a TTN gateway on top of an 8 (concrete) floor building and LoRaWAN works in the basement. So best to test before investing in additional hardware.

Good advice, cheers.

Which set of gateway are you using? I am not good with antenna so I may need to look into that aspect too.
