English term or phrase:rustication
For instance, the pattern of joints and *** rustications*** can be made to give an overall horizontal or vertical look to a structure. Rustications are grooves in a concrete surface used as decoration (even where no joint is needed), but are very often located concurrently with joints.
Thank you, Vauwe, Stephen and Rapid, for your input and references. Job's out of the door with its terminology in place!

Rustication is a term used for the texture of stone masonry that displays deep horizontal or vertical joints. Rustication was often used by 19th century American architect H. H. Richardson to create a sense of power and strength in his buildings. The stones used are usually of a scale and finish that contrast sharply with the surfaces of other materials.
