Façade


Façade
Façade, (italiensk facciata, forside) er benævnelsen på forsiden af en bygning; man taler vel tillige om side-facade, men facade betegner for byhuses vedkommende forsiden, den, som ved sin dekorative udstyrelse udtrykker bygningens karakter og bestemmelse. For fritliggende bygningers vedkommende kan man derimod som regel ikke betegne en enkelt side som facade. En face, forfra.
Synonymer: Forside, ydre, ydre skal, hovedindgangsside.
