Fake sunken lounge, living areas layout dilemma

Hi our house has a 'fake' sunken lounge, instead of digging the foundations down it has a risen platform with a step that goes down into the lounge......and the master bedroom... to the front door and leads to the dining and kitchen. It is black slate and drives us crazy.

We are unsure what is under it because the builder who built it has retired and we have tried to contact him to find out if its part of the slab or was poured after.

Has anyone dealt with removing one of these? Or have any ideas as to what we could do? We are worried it is not going to be a simple thing to do at all.....which is why we have put up with it for the past 14 years : )

Much appreciated!
