I thinking of a building where the lower levels are used for parking vehicles while the upper levels have shops and/or residences. .
The parking levels usually have no walls to provide ventilation (and it is cheaper), they usually have a barrier to stop people and cars going over the edge but not a full heigh wall. So they are partially enclosed and partially open.

They provide economic shelter from the weather (rain/sun).

I would not describe them as being 'walled' nor 'outside'.
