It is a massive and imposing structure, perhaps even more impressive than The Red Citadel at King's Landing because there are no other tall structures around it. Architecturally, the style is vague. One of the brilliant achievements of GoT's set-design team, led by production designer Deborah Riley, is that they successfully apply a mishmash of real-world thrones architectural styles—Roman, Egyptian, Mayan, Moorish, Greek, Germanic, Indian, citadel.
By carefully avoiding real-world, historical breaking bad cooks, the designers convince you that this is indeed an alternate universe. That lack of analog is evident once Sam enters the Citadel library, which is stunning.

Something else that tickled me was when we catch a glimpse of the furniture and its attendant details. Even in a fantasy world, they cannot get inch wide boards.
Here you can see the reading surface of the carrels consists of two boards joined edge-grain-to-edge-grain. The support structure of the bench appears to be joined with a cross-lap. And we see that the space is cavernous, absolutely loaded breaking bad dialogue stories pun intended.

Inside the doors is a hall with game stone citadel and high, arched windows.
