Any place for some DIY woodwork?

Not too long ago I designed a modular shelving system and made a few units for myself using little else than some cut-to-size plywood, a portable workbench, a biscuit jointer and some glue. I need to build more as I ran out of time and wood last time, and this time I need to do it in Zurich.

Problem is, it's very likely I'll end up at a place where the neighbours wouldn't be too fond of noise of the biscuit jointer - it's seriously loud for the balcony, and I don't want to upset the civility I see in the residential area.

So I'm wondering whether there is any kind of DIY studio / facility that can be hired, similar to DIY auto-repair garages. I can bring my own tools but it will be nice if I can leave some wood there if I can't finish the job in one go.

Of course any other suggestions are appreciated as well.

I used to live in Kloten and there we had a wood shop open to the public - part of the Vereinigung Freizeit Kloten. You had to go to an introductory class (next one is Sept. 3) and thereafter you could use the work shop for CHF 8 (CHF 3 to use the room, CHF 5 to use the machines). If you live in Kloten, you're lucky - you can go do your work there - they have a complete wood shop set-up - it's nice. Probably there are other communities that offer something similar. Here's the link to the Kloten wood shop:

It's a long way to go, but if you cannot find anything else, you could perhaps try the Freizeitanlage in Wädenswil. Or perhaps someone there knows of other similar facilities nearer Zürich.
