Coloured Hempcrete Block, Stretcher
Hempcrete is a building material made from a mixture of hemp shiv (the woody inner core of the hemp plant) and a lime-based binder. It is often used as an alternative to traditional concrete or brick construction, and it is known for its natural aesthetic, low environmental impact, and high thermal mass.
Hempcrete is made by mixing hemp shiv and a lime-based binder, such as hydraulic lime, together to form a slurry. The slurry is then poured into moulds or applied by hand to form the desired shape, and it is left to cure until it hardens into a solid mass. Hempcrete can be used to construct walls, floors, and roofs, and it can be finished with a variety of natural or synthetic finishes. Pigments or dyes can be added in a range of colours and shades, depending on the desired aesthetic effect.
The stretcher bond or running pattern 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 a seamless insulation texture with coloured hempcrete block arranged in a stretcher pattern. Seamless textures can be tiled repeatedly across a surface without visible seams making them useful for architectural drawings and 3D models. This image can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations. A high resolution version of this texture is available, as well as CAD hatches and PBR maps with Architextures Pro.
