    My old prof used to call them 'Dodge City' sets but they are simply 'False Fronts' - a facade that is independent of the architecture of the rest of the building.

    Oh, back in 1992, I built a 10x10 shed in my back yard to look like an old western building. That design is called a "False Front".

    still haven't gotten the right answer. A façade is wrong.

    It could be 'facade' or it could be 'curtain wall'.

      In Britain what came to my mind first was "curtain wall". But now that you have mentioned "facade", that too might be suitable. Given the variety of offers so far, how will you know which one is correct?

    Façade is it's name.

    Usually a Facade, the whole perimeter of a flat roof would be a Parapet.
