Here are some optimizations:
( remember that when it comes to optimization , less means more )
1) All windows are instanced per style, per entire row.
2) Each Facade style is represented by a 1 ( Single ) material iD only. If entire row uses a single style this means it's only using a single 'set' of textures.
3) All Window style used one set of texture. Variation is panned using Per-Instance Data.
4) All styles are equipped with LOD for the individual section meshes.
5) Pattern profile uses 2048 sets that is shared across all style.
