Google tells me that it is a suite of rooms in a line, with their doors on the same axis so that they provide one continuous path through the entire suite of rooms. Popularized in Baroque architecture but existing before in examples such as the Raphael Rooms in the Vatican.

Wikipedia says:  In architecture, an enfilade is a suite of rooms formally aligned with each other. This was a common feature in grand European architecture from theBaroque period onward, although there are earlier examples, such as the Vatican stanze. The doors entering each room are aligned with the doors of the connecting rooms along a single axis, providing a vista through the entire suite of rooms. The enfilade may be used as a processional route and is a common arrangement in museums and art galleries, as it facilitates the movement of large numbers of people through a building.
