How do you want it to look?

Response to Diorama composition

There are no real rules governing the position of buildings (or figures, or vehicles, etc) in a diorama. It's a matter of what looks more interesting.
You could angle the building and cut off whatever hangs over the "live" area, or angle it and move it in away from the edge. Cutting the building off would act as a framing element to prevent the eye of the viewer from wandering off the edge of the subject.
Static dioramas with perfect balance and a symetrical layout tend to be less interesting than those with some variety in their layout.
