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

Description

A seamless concrete texture with concrete blocks arranged in a stretcher pattern. The image represents a physical area of 3097 x 3640 mm (121.9 x 143.3 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 300 x 900 mm (11.8 x 35.4 inches). The joints are filled with mortar and are 10 mm (0.4 inches) in width.

Concrete is one of the most widely used materials in architecture and construction, for structural and decorative components. Concrete’s high strength, durability, and ease of adaption through formworks lends itself to all building typologies, while the range of finishes, from boardmarked to polished, allow it to be incorporated with a variety of other materials and moods. Concrete can be cast in situ, or prefabricated and transported to site, where it is often used for slabs, floors, walls, columns, beams, and façade cladding.

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.
