Actually Thorwal isn't just medieval but very "nordic", consisting of a couple of "Ottaskins", which are the Ship/Raiding-Communities, which have some kind of dedicated areas, surrounded by palisades and whatnot.

And while you will see some of the houses you may know from Drakensang and so on, in Thorwal you will find lots of Longhouses like this: http://rpg.saakje.de/otta2.htm

So, at least in my imagination based on what I remember from the TDE games the Lexicon and several Novels, Thorwal is a very, very loose town in the west, where you find the shipyard, the Ottaskins and basic "longhouses" (I imagine it a little bit like a cluttered siege camp, just with houses isntead of tents). To the east (away from the water) the city becomes more "typical medieval", you have the "industrial zone" including the blacksmiths and so on.
