Tweeted by the Jennifer Lawrence Fans Films fan account, the photo shows construction of part of the interior of the X-Mansion, where the next generation of mutants is taught.

If the assembled framing and plywood doesn't exactly scream "X-Mansion" to you, the subsequent tweet offers screenshots from the films for reference. Specifically, the large windows on set correspond with those seen in Xavier's study and at the end of a long hallway. "Apparently, they're building the corridors and dorms," the Twitter account added.
