Tenants include a jewellery designer, glass artist and silversmith
A town landmark building is reopening its doors to the public following major structural work.
The Model House Craft and Design Centre in Llantrisant closed to the public in December when the company which ran it went into liquidation.
However, artists and designers based at the site continued to use the studios.
Rhondda Cynon Taf council (RCT), which owns the building, said it had invested in tackling structural problems with the roof and outer walls.
The Model House, which will reopen to the public on Friday, is seen as important to the economic development of the old town.
Tenants include a jewellery designer, glass artist, silversmith and design consultant.
"The work on the roof and outer walls is hoped to be completed in March 2010 and therefore the scaffolding currently enveloping the building will be removed," said the council in a statement.
"They [RCT council] have also met continually with tenants in an effort to reopen the building to the public as it is seen as economically important to the whole of the historic town which attracts visitors on a regular basis.
"The council will continue to work with tenants to help secure the long-term future of Model House for the benefit of residents, tenants and visitors alike."
The Model House, which featured a shop selling crafts and was also used for arts workshops, celebrated its 20th anniversary last summer.
But the company that ran it, Model House Ltd, went into liquidation leading to the closure of the building to the public.
