I don't know of an automatic way to do this but I have this manually set
up in my org-files.

I keep level 1 headings as categories/topics and archive level 2
subtrees only.

Each of the level 1 headings has a property that defines where the
archived items should go - so they end up in the same tree structure in
the archive file.

| * Appointments
|   :CATEGORY: Appt
|   :ARCHIVE:  %s_archive::* Appointments
|   :END:      
|   ...
| * Miscellaneous
|   :CATEGORY: todo
|   :ARCHIVE: %s_archive::* Miscellaneous
|   :END:
