- Gap / Groove / Seam / Joint / Grout line
A seam is a deliberate space between two components or materials. There are many types of joints, such as construction joints, connection joints, space joints, shadow joints, etc. A seam can fulfil more than just constructional purposes, it can also have a design purpose. A joint, for example in the façade, can divide the building into two areas. A clear demarcation has thus been created.
