Townhome development in my town. Why would the architect do such a thing? All are like this on the side elevation.

As a former architect, I can tell you it is not an architect's choice, but usually the developer (if he even had an architect) who does not want to spend the money on developing and building different side elevations, and the buyers (or renters) do not care.

Not that, the top window is not centered. Just don't understand why the architect did not center, bottom window is mostly centered.

Interior floor plan? Maybe it makes sense inside the house. Goes to the whole ugly boxes with holes punched in them comment by Frank Lloyd Wright.
