STUDIO DOHO was formed in 2016 with a simple idea: We Create Excitement. 

DOHO, a blend of the founder's surnames, is a collaboration between architects Xin Dogterom (Dutch-Chinese) and Jason Holland (USA) which aims to explore experience-based design that creates excitement. We are storytellers at heart and use design to explore the possibilities and interactions of people in space.
Founded as a boutique design office in Shanghai, our work is a fusion of international perspective and local understanding of Shanghai's global design ambition. We have completed, or are currently working on, over 30 projects in China which include a diverse collection of F&B, retail, office and lifestyle projects.
Like a great story, we start our design with the end in mind and then craft a narrative that tells the client's story through color, material and texture. The end result is an atmosphere and experience that captures the imagination of the client and packs a big idea into a small space; all of which is focused on creating excitement.

We deliver projects ranging from high-end to eccentric, under the constraints of small spaces, tight budgets and short timelines. Our desire to deliver great work drives us to work closely with contractors and spend generous amount of time on-site during construction to ensure a great result.
Xin and Jason collaborate on all design work produced by the studio to ensure all projects are design-driven and pragmatic. Xin applies over 6 years of work experience in China to create fresh and exciting design concepts. Jason has been delivering projects in Shanghai for international companies since 2010 and offers a proven understanding of construction. Our growing team, which consists of 6 people, brings together a highly skilled group with diverse backgrounds in design, construction and project management.

We have quickly become a recognized named in the Shanghai interior design scene and are building a presence internationally with publications in multiple media outlets. Most recently we have been shortlisted for the 2018 Restaurant and Bar Design Awards for Best Use of Color.

Our recent success comes from a professional and personal understanding of design and a dedication to our work. We are excited to continue our growth and for the opportunities in store.
