According to Mau, the doorway led into a ruined room, now with a collapsed floor.

To the north of that room was an entrance into another room, which although he said it was conserved, it could only be entered with some difficulty.

Looking north along the west portico of the peristyle. See Warscher, T, 1935: Codex Topographicus Pompejanus, Regio I, 3: (no.6), Rome, DAIR, whose copyright it remains.  
According to Warscher, quoting Mau in Bull. Inst. 1874, p. 182, she wrote that 
“Il pavimento del peristilio è di mattoni pesti (opus Signinum) con pietruzze bianche poste in file, che fra le colonne formano una spezie di disegno” – (adesso distrutto).
(translation: "The floor of the peristyle was made of crushed brick (opus Signinum) with white stones laid in rows, these formed a type of design between the columns." – (now destroyed).
