I designed this tessellation as a variant of Momotani’s Wall with some extra spacing between the bricks added (hence the name Brick and Mortar Tessellation).

The basic molecule is 5×5 grid units — compared to the classic, the difference is using a square twist with 2:1 slope instead of the 1:1 Kawasaki twist. Just like the original, this is an iso-area tessellation.

It’s a simple modification so someone may well have folded it before.
