Design in the City is an artist coop on Bezalel Street in Jersualem. Artists have very affordable studio space, to both work and sell their products. The basement of the space has an oven for ceramics and tools to cut metals and sew clothes. The entrance is a cafe.

Wonderful! A lot of cities could learn from this model. The art school is just down the street.
