A façade is the exterior face or wall of a building with many different design features and architectural elements. The word façade can signify any external wall of a building but many times it is the front wall with an entrance. The front tends to be more elaborate and may have different architectural elements than the rest of the walls; it can be simple, decorative or quite ornate. An Architect considers many details in designing the buildings walls; from the placement of windows and doors, to the materials used such as stone, brick, concrete and wood.
The building façade provides the structural integrity to the building and it provides the weather resistance and the thermal, acoustic and fire resisting properties to the building. The type of system that is used depends on the type of building and on local planning ordinances.
