The Villa located on the Nr. 8 Ko Min Ko Chin Road in Yangon was built around the 1920s-1930s in a colonial style. The building has a rich history with several changes of use. It is known that it was acquired by a prominent Chinese merchant and his family shortly after its completion. Afterwards, it was a Headquarter of the AFPFL during the Second World War. As of the 1960s the building was used as the School of Arts under the Ministry of Culture and later as occasional art exhibition space. Currently the building together with the whole of the site around is leased and is being renovated by Goethe-Institut as a base for its activities in Myanmar.
The different periods in the building’s history have left their respective marks in the fabric and structure.
The purpose of the refurbishment is to restore the Villa that has fallen in disrepair to its former glory.
