VI.2.16 Pompeii. May 2011. Looking west into room in south-west corner of atrium.
According to Fiorelli, this was the stairs to the upper floor.  According to Hobson, the narrow room with a step up over a threshold stone and a window at the far end was possibly a latrine. However, an area in the kitchen with a low wall, on which a screen might have been stood and again with a window, suggests the position of a latrine.  Either or both could be a latrine.

VI.2.16 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking east across atrium towards south wall of atrium and tablinum, on right.  
According to PPM (1979) –
“On the south wall of the atrium, in addition to being able to see the zoccolo/dado, you could still see the traces of the candebra that crossed the compartments of the middle area and which supported the painted squares in the upper area.
See Carratelli, G. P., 1990-2003. Pompei: Pitture e Mosaici. IV. Roma: Istituto della enciclopedia italiana, (p. 207).
The doorway led to a second set of stairs to the upper floor with the outline of the stairs visible on the south wall.
Under these stairs was an area used as a storeroom, according to Fiorelli.
