There are two elevators leading to the Chamber of the Princess. The small one is for Ornstein and the large one is for Smough.

My mind exploded!

Yup. The little details in the world really tell the story.

I don't think you appreciate how long I thought it was a weird decision to make that area asymmetrical for no reason. Then I saw a message at the top of the large elevator that said "Fatty" and I realized THERE IS A REASON!

Anor Londo was never known for it's tight book keeping. They kept blowing their budgets on everything, like the Duke's Archives has swiveling stairways, you know how much that cost?! I read it on a ring description..

I like to imagine they built Smough's elevator first, and Ornstein just thought it was too damn spacious. I believe there's a ring that details Ornstein's reverse claustrophobia right?

The stairs up to that area also have separate steps for giants and humans.

I never noticed that. Anor Londo is full of little details like that. You have the different sized stairs for giants and humans. All statues of the War God are removed with only an empty space remaining. Jeff Green recently revealed that Ornstein is actually Jewish.

Oh Anor Londo... a figure made of bronze with feet made of clay.

Actually a classical quote about Carthage from an ancient chronicler
