In The Maze Runner movie, it is referred to as the Council Hall and is built of long branches and sticks.
Thomas described it as a "leaning structure of wood and windows." It is multistory with multiple rooms, as well as a bathroom and a room for nursing the wounded. The foyer and hallway were plastered with dark peeling wallpaper and there were missing floor boards, which indicates that it was poorly maintained.
