This changes each half of the top to curves. Click on the control points and adjust the Bezier control handles as shown in the enlargement to make a gentle curve. This may take some doing. Take your time until the corners are a smooth arched curve. Notice in the enlargement above how the Bezier control handles form a straight line that is tangent to the curve. The blue dashed line represents the proper angle for both of the handles. Select the large rectangle, then switch to the Contour Tool (Ctrl F7). Drag any of the red arrow control handles toward the center a very short distance. Change the Contour Width slider setting to 14pix and press Enter to apply the change. Change the Number of Contour Steps  to 1 and press Enter to apply the change. Arrange > Convert to Editable Shapes and then Arrange > Ungroup. Repeat this step with the smaller rectangle. Except change the width setting to 4 pixels and 1 step. Reduce the middle circle (shown in green outline) to 135 pixels. Add a new 30 pixel circle. And create a small house icon. Here’s how to make the house icon: Create two rectangles as shown top left. Center the two rectangles. Let the vertical rectangle extend over the bottom of the wide rectangle. Select both rectangles and Arrange > Combine Shapes > Subtract Shapes (or press Ctrl 2). Add a new control point with the Shape Editor Tool and use the up arrow key on your keyboard to nudge it upwards as shown. Reduce the height to 18 pixels and center it over the 30 pixel circle.
