ABOUT CHRISTINA

Christina Fu is a designer specializing in single family residences in Arcadia, Pasadena, San Marino, and the surrounding neighborhoods.

Christina graduated from the University of California Berkeley College of Environmental Design in 2001. She began her career in residential design in 2006 as an associate designer for a prominent architect in Pasadena.  In 2016, Christina start her own design firm specializing in updating old homes for current day living.  She finds her strength and expertise in reviving old houses to fit the current owner’s desires, restoring the integrity of the characters of the house, creating a home with a comfortable flow, and, perhaps, a safer place in which to live.
