Explanation:
Creo que el término es simplemente "face"; el término "exposed" me parece que hace referencia a paredes exteriores, en el sentido de expuesta a los elementos naturales.
Te paso un par de ejemplos, espero que algún native confirme el término.

To show the effects of these approaches, we see them lighting three different light-colored surfaces from the TechCenter’s “Effects Hall”: fabric wall covering, stucco plaster and brick face

Facing brick - a brick whose colour and durability is suitable for the exposed face of a wall.
