Many Tamrielic structures in Coldharbour appear to have been stolen directly from Nirn. But the Daedra, though not creative, are great imitators, so some locations may merely be uncannily exact replicas.
The Vile Laboratory

The Vile Laboratory is an emulated Dwemer ruin in southern Coldharbour, southeast of the Hollow City.

As the name implies, this installation, run by the xivilai Overseer Xvarik, is used to conduct numerous dark and sadistic experiments on mortals brought to Coldharbour, with a Light of Meridia being used as the power source for it all.

The latest experiment comprised of merging the souls of two mages into one body, slowly making them decay from the inside until reaching a slow and agonizing death.

Transmutation of Living Creatures, a Transmutation Potion Recipe, and The Notebook of Mage Gadris can be found within the laboratory.
