How to model wall recesses?

I'm having a problem modelling the following windows and walls.
(see attached image)


I have tried using an empty window to cut the recess and polygonal walls for the pillars between the windows. This still leaves some lines in story views and it's impossible to have a clean model, easy to modify later.

Besides SEO and modelling every wall around the windows (very non-productive) is there any way to solve this?

Thank you

Yep, the script is working now. Very useful. Thank you.
I like GDL!!


The profiled wall requires extra operations at certain points (corner, when the profile changes etc). The wall niche works best. It has only one problem: it doesn't have a wall contour line option (like empty windows and doors) and requires some cleanup (see attached).

Try to break the wall in that point and bring the recessed wall to the background.
HTH.
