Our goal is to help people work to make a life-- not just a living. We’ve designed Brix & Mortar with an energizing and inspiring atmosphere in mind to further engage a growing community of like-minded, driven professionals. Working from home may once have been your dream, but set up shop with Brix & Mortar Coworking, and you’ll soon see just what’s missing from making your business the best it can be.
Overlooking the Wisconsin State Capitol and situated at the top of State Street, doing business at Brix & Mortar Coworking doesn’t mean you’re stuck behind a desk all day. With plenty to see and do just steps away from your workspace, you’ll love everything working in the heart of downtown Madison has to offer.
Restaurants: Plenty of fine dining restaurants, casual eateries, and grab-and-go food trucks are available within blocks, if not steps of Brix & Mortar Coworking. Impress a client at one of many Madison favorites, or expand your palate by trying new cuisines on your lunch breaks.
Fitness: Whether you like to sweat it out at a gym, pound the pavement, row one of the two lakes, or cycle through the city, downtown Madison offers lots of ways to work workouts into your workday.
Attractions: All work and no play does not make for a well-balanced you. When the day is done or you just need a break, museums, movie theaters, live music venues, performing arts, and a booming campus are sure to keep you entertained.
Shopping: Who needs big box stores when downtown Madison delivers unique boutique shops with clothing, gifts, decor and more–and all just steps away from where you work.
Public Parking and Transportation: For car-commuters, we’ve got connections to parking passes upon request and availability. If you’re just a once-in-a-while driver without the need for a permanent parking spot, downtown Madison features parking garages situated all around the square. If you prefer mass transit, bus stops are easily accessible right outside Brix & Mortar Coworking, as well as throughout Madison and the surrounding areas.
In the heart of Madison
After years of early mornings, late nights, and weekends dedicated to my side hustle, my dreams of owning my own business finally came true in the spring of 2016. I loved being my own boss and choosing my own destiny. But I soon found I didn’t love my working environment. Don’t get me wrong, I welcome the freedom of the entrepreneurial life—making my own schedule, wearing whatever is most comfortable, turning off all...
If working from home has long been the dream, then you likely never imagined the reality of constant interruptions, lack of motivation, or complete isolation that comes with it. Sound familiar? You’re not alone. These are just a few among a long list of reasons why Brix & Mortar Coworking exists. Without having to commit to a lengthy lease or costly office space, you can take a break from your uninspiring home space, stop hanging your shingle at the overcrowded coffee shop, and have a professional spot to meet and greet new and existing clients.
Pajamas, private bathrooms, and all the free coffee you can drink–what’s wrong with working from home? The truth is absolutely nothing. That is until suddenly you’re not getting as much work done because home is where the kids, chores, pets, Netflix, and occasional naps are. Being your own boss is the best, but if the work isn’t getting done, then you’re not getting paid. And that’s no way to run a business.
With so many remote workers and solopreneurs setting up shop with baristas, you may consider your coffee shop a coworking space already. And in a sense you’re right. You’re getting out of the house, you’re typically surrounded by other people working on laptops, and so long as you’re buying cups of joe, wifi is free. However, that’s where the perks end.
At coffee shops, not everyone is working, which means social gatherings and just the sounds associated with brewing drinks can become loud and disruptive. When you need a bathroom break, it’s hard to feel safe leaving your possessions out in public. But taking them with you means potentially losing your cozy work nook. And let’s not forget that not only does coffee now come at a price but also the wifi may be spotty at best since it’s not often set up to be responsive to multiple people’s high-speed business needs.
Brix & Mortar Coworking means the freedom to come and go as you please, dress as you like, and even all the free beverages you can drink (plus no security worries when resulting bathroom break needs kick in!). Along with it, Brix & Mortar Coworking lends structure to your day, people with whom to chat and network, and a meeting spot that doesn’t require cleaning your home from top to bottom.
