The extra lines around the door will pinch the geometry together, giving the result you see. depending on what you want, there's serval things you can do -

1; Select the door frame polygons and extrude them out - this will give you more of a 'frame' that sticks out from the tower

2; Select the doors and extrude them in - this will give you a similar look

3; goto mesh display>soften/harden edges>ā˜option box - different values in this option will either smooth out this pinched geometry or make them more pronounced

hope this helps
