(I'm assuming you mean the smaller guilds, right?)
The thing is, there isn't really any modern equivalent for most of the smaller guilds at the moment. Currently, a Guild Meeting Hall would make the most sense with just the four major guilds. However, we don't know if other Guilds or groups might appear or become more major later.
So, what if instead of a certain number of fixed walls, we have:
Thick curtains or movable walls (walls that can be slid around the center of the room [and maybe they retract upwards instead of downwards?]).
Movable furniture (for desks and podiums and benches and all).
Then we can start with the room separated for just the four major guilds. If a new guild or group comes in (either permanently because they have become a major and relevant organization, or temporarily for a discussion of some kind), the layout of the room would be changed. The walls or curtains would be pushed together (and another one added) to divide the room into more (slightly smaller) sections. Another set of furniture would be brought up from storage to accommodate the group. This would probably be an admin thing (since it would only be for really special occasions or for things that could take a little time). None of the stuff would actually move in the game itself (IC because it's very large and heavy).
