A house brick often has a hollow in one surface, known as the 'frog'.

BBC practice is to lay bricks with their frogs uppermost (which is not always the case in conventional building practice) because then they have to be filled completely with cement.

This makes the wall heavier than it may otherwise have been, and therefore a little bit better at soundproofing.
