it faces the Old City in what was no man's land between 1948-67 (and still has signs of it).

The building itself was constructed between 1927-30 as a wing of St. John's Eye Hospital by architect Clifford Holliday (who also built nearby St. Andrew's Church of Scotland). A tunnel under Hebron Road once connected it to the hospital's first building, today the Mt. Zion Boutique Hotel.

In an eclectic style with oriental influences, it boasts an airy central courtyard surrounded by three floors of some 24 glass-fronted artists' studios and a ground floor exhibition hall. Special features:
* Armenian Tile Room by ceramic artist David Ohannessian
* crests of Scottish nobility - hospital patrons - in the courtyard
* facsimile of 2,700-year-old silver scroll of the Priestly Blessing in ancient Hebrew, found in an archaeological excavation between the House and St. Andrew's Church
* second floor iron railing by sculptor David Palombo (known for Knesset Gates).

Best to visit between 10:00-13:00.

In easy walking distance of:
Old Train Station, Khan Theatre, St. Andrew's Church of Scotland, Lions Fountain/ Bloomfield Garden, Jerusalem Cinematheque, Menahem Begin Museum, Mishkenot Sha'ananim, Yemin Moshe.

British eclectic architecture with oriental influence, built in 1927 by architect Clifford Holliday.
Original ceramic works since the first days of the building, done by one of the local most famous Armenian ceramic artist: David Ohannessian.
Later iron railing work of Israeli famous sculptor David Palombo.
The building was originally built as a hospital eye disease and currently is u center of quality artisans especially Jerusalem jewelery sector.
Interesting original high quality works.
Best time to visit it is during the morning 10.00-13.00.
Do the same like me. Buy for your wife an original gift from the work place. She will appreciate it.
At few meters you find a free parking.

If you want to create your dream, decorate your home walk to the old building at 12 Hebron Road, Jerusalem. The artists there lead the charge, on the search for space that can be rented cheap. But they wanted atmosphere too—old building, a place to walk in, with a special Inner courtyard and waterfront, that can't be too far from downtown. Very near to the Jerusalem Cinematheque, Menahem Begin Museum and Mishkenot Sha'ananim .Coffee shops near, which draw writers and musicians. Old and young people attracted to the creative energy also seeking a connection to the artists.
More people keep coming because Hatahana opens. Restaurants, 25 Shekel beers are on sale at the corner. If you want you can get a special tour in the place in English and other languages. Great parking place near it and the view of old Jerusalem.
