According to Warscher, quoting Fiorelli, she wrote –
I.3.5/6 – “Sono due tabernae in relazione tra loro, e perciò appartenute ad un stesso padrone. Entrambe hanno un primo compreso, separate da altro più interno, per un muro in cui è un’ampia finestra, onde ciascuno di essi prendeva luce: entrambe erano coverto da volte, di cui rimane solo la parte più interna. La prima ha nel mezzo un banco o podio di fabbrica, l’altra tiene accanto una cella, che sembra un dormitorio.” 
(translation: "These were two linked workshops joined with each other, and therefore belonged to the same owner.  Both had a front shop-room, separated by other more internal rooms, and by a wall in which was a wide window, so each room one took light from it: both were covered by a vault, but only the innermost part remained.  In the middle of the first (I.3.5) was a masonry table or podium, the other had a room, which seemed to be a dormitory."
See Warscher, T, 1935: Codex Topographicus Pompejanus, Regio I, 3:  Rome, DAIR.

I.3.5 Pompeii. September 2010. Detail of niche in rear east wall on south side. Photo courtesy of Drew Baker. According to Boyce, this broad arched niche in the east wall, originally had its walls coated with white stucco. The stucco was painted with red, blue and green flowers and plants. Eventually, a layer of red stucco was spread over the top, and since peeling off, had revealed the earlier layer underneath. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.24)

In Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.3, (the copy at DAIR), Warscher included a description of the insula.

This description is included at the end in all parts of I.3 on the website.

 

“L’isola 3 della Regio I apparteneva ai quartieri piuttosto poveri, ad’esenzione della casa no. 3 tutto le case sono di dimensioni non grandi.

La casa no. 3 presenta un interesse dal punto di vista della costruzione: il peristilio si trova ad un livello più alto di quello dell’atrio:

questa particolarità si riscontra solamente in questa casa.

Noi abbiamo un esempio inverso nella casa dell’Ancora nera ove l’atrio si trova ad un livello più alto di quello del peristilio.

Si sente bene nell’isola in questione la vicinanza dell’anfiteatro da una parte e delle caserme dei gladiatori dall’altra.

Non c’è dubbio che le case nos 23, 25 siano state abitato da gladiatori.

(translation: “Insula 3 of Region I belonged to a rather poor neighbourhood, with the exception of house No. 3 all the houses were not large in size.

The house at no. 3 had a special interest from the point of view of construction: the peristyle sits at a level higher than that of the atrium: this particularity was found only in this house. We have a contrary example in the House of the Black Anchor where the atrium was located at a higher level than that of the peristyle.

The nearness of the amphitheatre on one side and the gladiators' barracks on the other suited well the inhabitants of the insula in question.

There was no doubt that the houses numbered 23, 25 had been inhabited by gladiators.”).
