Our Location

Our creativity is inspired daily, in part, by a phenomenal adaptive re-use building. Originally constructed during the early twentieth century, 105 Grove Street was, for many years, home to the family-owned George Rutledge Etched Brass Works Company. The firm manufactured brass-etched business signs, commercial tags, and dedication plaques, as well as artistic creations such as desk sets & etched portraits.

In 2007, the Bravitas Group adapted the building for unique professional space catering to the creative class. The building includes many amenities, including art galleries in all of the common spaces. We invite you to visit our creativity lab, a/k/a office, in Suite #1 at the Brassworks on Grove building – 105 Grove Street, Montclair, New Jersey.
