Empty looking building

Not quite sure if this is the right category but I’m making row houses but I can’t seem to figure out what to add on the top of this blue row house before I add the roof, I’ve tried to add another row of windows but It’s too big for the space I have left and it would look weird considering the top window rows will get super close to the roof line, neither can I move the windows down because than they get to close to each other and I have to start all over again. So I need some suggestions on what to add here, because I just can’t figure out what to add for the past 2 hours, Help.


I think it really depends on what you want to go for with the building.

To me, it kind of looks like a shop of some sort because of the awnings below, and in that case you could maybe make a sign? If it’s a residential building you could maybe try a balcony, but I’m not sure it would fit.


the bottom is supposed to be a shop and than the second and third floor are apartments, I could make a sign.

If you do make a sign I suggest moving it down by the awnings and moving the windows up. It would feel a bit odd to have the sign of the shop all the way up there.

Idea: make the wall shorter to be close to the top window, have some pipes on the roof that stick out.

Could you describe more with what you mean with ‘‘some pipes on the roof that stick out’’

Adding lines and material to a building can make it look more interesting like this:


You could put some guttering on the roof (half-pipes which collect rain water from the roof and direct the flow into drain pipes going down the side of the building). This is probably most common on buildings with sloped roofs, but you have a sloped roof building there anyway so I think it might be fine. You could maybe try an overhang on the top balconies to shelter them from the rain.
