roofs tucked into crevices: you could maybe switch any of those to a 
balcony. You would need also a door though... Alternatively, a flat roof 
would also be possible.

weird overhangs: some kind of additional support indeed; columns for one 
cell gaps, something like a half-arch strut/buttress elsewhere?

I would shudder to have to walk on one of those balconies.... ;-)
