Christina Fu is an architectural designer specializing in single family residences. She has worked on houses in Arcadia, Temple City, Pasadena, San Marino, and the surrounding neighborhoods.

Christina has been in the home design business since 2006. After 6 years of working in an architecture firm, she began picking up remodeling projects for friends and acquaintances, upgrading their homes and making them more functional. She then became the founder of the architectural design company, Silver Elm Studio LLC, to expand her services to the greater community around her.

Christina describes herself as a problem solver. She enjoys taking an old house and remodeling it to fit the new owner’s desires, making the access flow more efficiently, and overall, creating a house that is more comfortable, and, perhaps even, a safer place in which to live. Her experience in home design ranges from a simple addition of a 500 square feet master bedroom suite, or interior remodel of an outdated kitchen, to creating a brand new 5,000 square feet house with a pool house and detached three-car garage.

Besides designing homes, Christina also enjoys running, cycling, swimming, hiking, Taekwondo, and playing the piano. She is also a mother of two very active boys, and wife to a former Marine. OOORAH!
