Doh Eain (“Our Home”) is a multi-discipline restoration and placemaking social enterprise based in Yangon, Myanmar. In a world of rapid urbanisation, we endeavor to ensure that our cities are places with cultural identity, and that they are livable, inclusive and sustainable. In this regard, we specialize in preserving heritage, improving public spaces, and organising cultural and social activities that connect people to places.
Founded early 2017, our firm brings together skills in research, participatory design, heritage restoration & construction, as well as cultural programming. Critical to our approach are heritage building owners and neighbourhood residents, with whom we work closely in making explicit the value and potential of existing historical, cultural, social and natural assets in the city. We consider these owners and residents to be the central agents in our design processes, in order to ensure local ownership and impact for long-term project sustainability.
Doh Eain relies on and applies a diversified set of financing methods, working with clients, loans, and grants on revenue and non-revenue generating projects.
