String Course

In architecture, a string course (otherwise known as a band course) is a horizontal band in a building. A string course or band course can either be flush with brickwork or projecting to provide an interesting architectural feature - often used to break up a monotonous expanse of brickwork. A string course or band course is an aesthetic device that occurs in virtually every style of Western architecture from classical Roman through Anglo-Saxon and Renaissance to modern. String courses or band courses are often used in conjunction with other architectural dressings such as plinth courses and quoins.
