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


A seamless concrete texture with rammed earth concrete blocks arranged in a stretcher pattern. The image represents a physical area of 2040 x 1559 mm (80.3 x 61.4 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 500 x 250 mm (19.7 x 9.8 inches). The joints are filled with a solid color and are 10 mm (0.4 inches) in width.

Rammed earth concrete is a method for constructing walls and structures, dating back thousands of years. Due to its environmentally friendly processes and embodied energy, rammed earth is increasingly becoming a popular choice in contemporary construction. The composition of rammed earth can greatly impact its appearance, though typically the product will strike hues of yellow-browns and greys. Rammed earth also holds a rough texture with varied patterns, thus making it a niche choice for exposed walls, or combined with metals and timbers to create a rustic aesthetic.

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.
