Our story

The 45-foot ceilings and wall of windows in the historic Seattle brick building at 5018 Ohio Avenue South once housed a fashion photo studio, metal producer, tandoori oven factory, and even a robotics shop.

Minutes from downtown Seattle, The Brickhouse was an experimental pilot location that let us test our modules and begin building community from 2015-2018.

The Brickhouse featured:

  • Six modular private studio/offices

  • 2000+ square feet of flexible common areas and shared operational and entrepreneurial resources

  • Secure and scalable onsite storage - no need to pay for unneeded closet space!

  • Invitations to attend, participate, curate and plan community events

  • Inspired by Seattle's rich community of artists, artisans, designers, creators, tinkerers, entrepreneurs, and the

Acknowledging the industrial heritage of the SODO and Georgetown neighborhoods - The Brickhouse was not only a place to work, but a place to explore the intersections of art and industry. Beyond location #1 in SoDo, every additional MODICA location will take its surroundings, history, and potential into account, influencing the particulars of layout, design, service offerings and events.

The Brickhouse was formally closed in March 2018 at the conclusion of our lease term, but will soon rise again at a new location in Seattle. Stay tuned!
