A seamless concrete texture with in situ concrete blocks arranged in a stretcher pattern

Description

A seamless concrete texture with in situ concrete blocks arranged in a stretcher pattern. The image represents a physical area of 4040 x 4020 mm (159.1 x 158.3 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 1000 x 2000 mm (39.4 x 78.7 inches). The joints are filled with mortar and are 10 mm (0.4 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 uses a running pattern also known as a stretcher bond. The stretcher bond is one of the most common bonds used in masonry construction and uses stretchers, bricks laid flat with their long edge parallel to the wall. Each alternating course is offset by a half stretcher.

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. You can download a high resolution version of this texture and a matching bump map or CAD hatch (compatible with AutoCAD and Revit) using Architextures Create with a Pro Subscription.
