Adjoining the plaza to the left (south west) is a large building complex identified as the governor's residence. Nearest the plaza were two long rooms, which were probably storage. To the left (south west) of these, two smaller rooms backed onto the curved road that led round the perimeter of the city - one house in from the wall (see the city plan). These were identified by the contents as kitchens. To the north east of the ground floor were living areas. Although we know that there was an upper floor, we have no knowledge of its layout or functions.
