Portuguese term or phrase: aparecer ou avançar no plano de fachada do prédio
From a Brazilisan lease for office space:

"A instalação de aparelhos deverá ser feita nas locais para tanto preestablecidos, cuidando-se para que os condicionadores não apareçem ou avancem no plano da fachada do prédio."

Does this mean that the air conditioners should not be visible or extend over the building's façade?
Lee Penya
be visible or protrude over the buildings façade.
Explanation:
in my opinion that's exactly it.
The air conditioners shouldnt be visible or protrude over the buildings façade.

aparecer = to show or be visible
avançar = to advance, to stand out, to project (buildings)
but in the specific case of air conditioners protrude is the term commonly used.

Hope this helps!
