    What is the best way to create this facade?

    Can someone please point me in the right direction on how to create this facade element please?
    It is effectively an enormous frame with cladding panels to all sides.
    Ideally I need to be able to apply panels to this at some point, but really need help just getting the form to look like the image below (which was done quickly in sketchup).
    I can't seem to get the curved corners with a curved top, or create a continuous surface. Please can someone just advise me on the best way to get started?

    If it were me I would consider creating an in-place family. Easy to do using extrusions, sweeps, etc. I'm sure there are other ways, there always are, but that would be where I would start.

    I would probably create a mass, split the face to where the columns/beam should be, load it and then apply walls to face.

    Hi guys, thanks for the responses.
    I have tried using the split face option now and it is starting to get me somewhere, however when I get to these curved corners the split face option throws in a load of lines dividing the surface up when I make a mass from the 'opening' I've just drawn. It also loses the curve on plan. The flat parts work spot on though.
    Ideally I need to make it all one face so I can apply a grid to it and then add panelisation to it by pattern (I think this is the way to do it?!). Any ideas?
