We may consider that the box was built into the antechamber as an integral component within the structure as opposed to an auxiliary piece of movable furniture placed within a space. There's no doubt that it certainly respects the antechamber.

I personally doubt that it was installed through the passageways after construction although according to the drawings and dimensions it's possible.
