I choose a name for the project file that reminds that it IS a project file 
(lie "project1.wpr"). Then, create that project (and write that project 
file) in the root directory for that project. In your example above, like 




You now have two disjoint projects (I hope that's what you want). When you 
open either one, the files will appear at the top level as you desire.
