Liwan is housed in an imaginatively repurposed historic building that was the first officially recognised school for girls in Qatar, founded by education pioneer Amna Mahmoud Al Jaida. The original school, named Banat El Doha, opened in the late 1950s, and over the years it was renamed Umm Almo'mneen Primary School.

Led by multidisciplinary Qatari designer Aisha Bint Nasser Al Sowaidi as its Director, Liwan provides the designers who join as members with state-of-the-art labs for pottery, leatherworking, digital photography and prototyping, as well as private and shared studios, giving them the resources needed to advance their work.
