Flat top house

There are some flat top houses which make me think of the Middle East. Most of them are one storey, occasionally, they are double storeys. Usually they are desert colour.  

They are concrete, and wall looks like stucco been plastered on. Some are smooth. others have a pattern.  Most of them have a rounded corner.

I suspect the flat top is just a facade. There must be a slope roof hidden behind the wall. I may be wrong. If they are flat top, the drainage might not be very efficient. Sometimes, the rain falls by the buckets in Auckland. It might be suitable in the desert, but not Auckland.

If you know what style they are, and if they are built in the 1920s, please let meknow.
