I like the photo but I think that I would prefer it with the people distorted rather than the strong lines of the windows

Well, yes you pays yer money and makes yer choice, but you can't have both. Where there are lots of people involved I think I prefer correct circles, as above. If it's architecture then rectilinear.

Fisheye in action?

Pretty amazing if that's from a single shot, rather than a stitch of a bunch of them.

And if this wasn't a fisheye shot nor a stitch, how did you keep the faces round? And where did context aware fill come into it?

The contextual fill comes into play around the edges - easily overlooked on a casual viewing, but obvious on close inspection. I quite liked it's surreal effect so left it unmodified. The individual RAW images were processed through DXO Optics Pro 8 which has an optional process setting called 'Volume Anamorphosis" this can either be "Recover Spheres" or "Recover Cylinders". I used 'Recover Spheres' prior to stitching the output JPEGS.

Final stitching and contextual fill of the ragged edges done in PSshop CS5
