When it comes to generating beautiful images of architecture, Stable Diffusion is one of the best and most versatile options out there. 

From ancient buildings to futuristic skyscrapers that defy physics, you can generate pretty much anything in Stable Diffusion

But if you’re someone who struggles to come up with creative ideas and prompts, then this article is for you. 

In this list, I’ll share the best Stable Diffusion architecture prompts you can take inspiration from for generating images. 

These prompts cover a wide variety of architectural images you can generate with Stable Diffusion. 

That being said, let’s get started. 

Best Stable Diffusion Architecture Prompts

Here are the best Stable Diffusion prompts for architecture. Before we get into the list of prompts, here are the models I’ve used for generating these images: 

As you can see, I only used SDXL models for all the images generated below. Also, if you’re curious, I used ComfyUI for my workflow as it works well with SDXL models. I’ve written a beginner’s guide to ComfyUI if you’re interested. 

With that out of the way, let’s dive in.

How To Generate Architecture Images In Stable Diffusion

While Stable Diffusion is perfect for generating any kind of image you want, many people struggle when it comes to architecture. 

So, to help you generate better architecture images in Stable Diffusion, I’ve listed some tips below. 

Pick The Right Model

In all my prompt articles, I always talk about the importance of choosing the right model for your image. 

In Stable Diffusion, there are often models made specifically for certain use cases. And that rings true for creating beautiful architectural images as well. 

You can either go for all-rounder models in Stable Diffusion which I’ve discussed here or you can pick models specifically trained for generating architecture. 

You’ll find many checkpoints as well as LoRA models for architecture images. Here are some I recommend using: 

Model NameTypePerfect For
Juggernaut XL CheckpointAll-Rounder
SDXL CheckpointAll-Rounder
DreamShaper XL CheckpointAll-Rounder
architecture_Interior_SDlifeCheckpointInterior Design
architecture_Exterior_SDlifeCheckpointExterior Design
ArchitectureRealMixCheckpointExterior Design
Organic ArchitectureLoRAExterior Design
Sumerian ArchitectureLoRAExterior Design

You can find plenty of architecture models on Civitai based on what kind of result you want to achieve. However, the models listed in the table above will do the job in most cases. 

Use Negative Prompts

Using negative prompts will help you a lot in excluding what you don’t want to include in your image. 

By writing negative prompts properly, you can ensure any unwanted element isn’t generated in your image. 

However, if you struggle with writing prompts, you can instead use Embeddings or Textual Inversion models.
