Elvina Crasto De Silva

BArch (Hons) MArch

Having qualified as an architect in India, Elvina was awarded a scholarship to pursue a Masters in Architecture and Urbanism in 2007 at Edinburgh University.

As one of our Associates and Senior Urban Designers, Elvina predominantly works on residential-led urban extensions in the UK, from concept design and community engagement through to outline planning applications. Project sizes range from 60 home extensions, to towns and villages, to 2,000 home urban expansions of cities. In addition, she has participated in a number of Charrettes including a 3,000 home extension to the town of Upplands Vasby in Sweden, and for Rublyovo-Archangelskoye, a development on the Moscow riverfront.

Elvina's notable projects include Land at Three Elms, a mixed-use sustainable urban extension to Hereford City with 1,200 new homes, a primary school and a neighbourhood centre, and an Outline Planning Application for 420 homes in Thornbury.

Away from the office, she is a keen dancer, enjoys hiking and cycling, and spends all of her annual leave travelling far and beyond.
