String courses

Add a contrasting architectural element in the form of a cast stone string course.

Quality cast stone string courses

Otherwise known as a band course, string courses are horizontal band features on a building and is an aesthetic device that occurs in virtually every style of Western architecture, from classical Roman through Anglo-Saxon and Renaissance to modern. A great way to break up monotonous brickwork, they can be designed to be either flush within the wall or to project slightly. However you choose to incorporate it, a string course is a great contrasting element for any architectural design.
