Some interior view of my current build.
The balconies tiered around the edge are to allow the building to be used as a commercial center, with flat sales cards along the walls and three-dimensional objects on the tower coves and up on the third balcony.
The balconies are tiered so that they progressively overhang the main floor, as can be seen by the steps. This helps to make what is a pretty large space feel kind of cozy and intimate. The darker wood tones help too.
