Elisa Pardini, Architect Director
Elisa studied architecture at the University of Rome, gaining her Advanced Diploma in Architecture in 2006. In her first role at Fuksas Architect, Rome, she formed part of the team re-working Montecatini’s historical spas, before moving to London to join Foster + Partners.
Initially part of the acclaimed More London project, Elisa also worked on the winning competition entry for the New York Public Library. She spent 18 months working on London’s Crossrail in Canary Wharf, following the project from concept phase to construction drawings of the park and pavilions.
In 2010, Elisa realised an ambition to start her own company and founded elips design. Her bold residential and retail designs received international media recognition and Dri Dri Gelato Shop was a finalist in the 2012 AJ Small Projects Awards.
