A linear, mostly horizontal stylistic element. It is a narrow strip that serves to define, delimit, structure and decorate parts of a building. The frieze can be smooth or plastic, painted or composed of individual components. It is used to make a room appear lower, since it is painted in the same colour as the ceiling surfaces, an optical illusion, since the eye has no reference point in white surfaces.
