Storrer's plan includes an unknown object, indicated in dashed lines, surrounding the stair in question. The unsub would seem to be identical in location to the wooden doghouse, though its plan shape includes an angled, not orthogonal, end wall . . .

Will await authentication, ideally from a source at Hillside.

My guess is a housing for some sort of necessary that would not look good if exposed, but I have never been sure.
That ... "contraption" houses the stairway to the projection booth, up and down of which I've traveled several miles, over the years.

Thru that previously linked Flickr image, I found this link:

It appears to be draftings made in 2019 about Hillside during the Restoration work. Super interesting.

Rood, the Flickr photos seem to indicate that the window on the end is not glazed. Is that so? The plan says "EXIST WINDOW TO REMAIN."

Always glazed in my time, but unremarkably enough so that you would seldom if ever look twice at the window. While carrying heavy cases of film (and new and old projectors) up and down those stairs, a fellow would only be grateful for the light the window provided.
