A seamless concrete texture with in situ concrete arranged in a herringbone pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1844 x 1798 mm (72.6 x 70.8 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 320 x 100 mm. The joints are filled with mortar and are 6 mm (0.2 inches) in width.
In situ concrete is a construction term used to denote any product where the concrete mixture is poured into form on the building site, as opposed to being prefabricated off-site. In situ concrete is popular due to its simple application, cost, and adaptability on site. A variety of finishes can be applied to in situ concrete, including boardmarking, polishing, or roughcasts. Common building elements cast in situ include walls, beams, columns, and floors.
This texture is an example of a herringbone pattern. Named for its resemblance to the skeleton of the herring fish, this pattern is formed with a series of interlocking rectangles positioned perpendicular to each other. Its use in the built environment dates back to at least Roman times and remains popular in contemporary architecture for a range of applications including tiled surfaces and parquet flooring.
This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
