In the middle of the building, draw two vertical lines at some distance from each other. Add a curved line at the top.
- Start detailing the roof.
Draw several straight horizontal lines on each side. Add side contours and small towers.
- Add the roof elements.
Draw a few more straight lines and add two small towers. Be careful and keep proportions.
- Add some outlines.
Focus on the auxiliary lines and make the side contours of the building clearer. Draw horizontal lines on each side.

In the upper part of the central body, draw smooth, slightly curved lines, as shown in our example.
- Depict the columns.
Be careful in this step and carefully draw six columns of the same shape and size.
- Sketch out the balcony.
Draw smooth connecting lines between the columns and add transverse lines to depict the elements of the balcony.
- Draw the plants.
With the help of smooth curved lines depict several small shrubs in front of the facade of the building. Draw the outline of the grass.
- Depict the windows on the top floor.
Draw tall windows between the columns using straight lines. Make sure the windows are the same size.

Now you have to draw the windows on the sides of the building. Take your time and carefully draw all the lines.
