Ana's interest in traversing disciplinary and cultural boundaries was celebrated during her MA in Scenography at Central Saint Martins and resulted in performances in Palermo, Sicily and in London at the Cochrane Theatre and Tate Britain. Directly following her MA, Ana worked with Anne Minors Performance Consultants on a variety of international projects for architects such us Fosters and Partners, Zaha Hadid Architects and Dixon Jones. She then joined Make's London office where she developed her sustainability research and community work with Open House whilst being a key member of the site team a high quality commercial redevelopment on Baker Street. Ana regularly teaches at the University of Bath and is a visiting critic at the Bartlett, UCL and the University of Westminster, London, and in addition takes part in discussions and talks on her work and design philosophy - most recently at Tate Britain, ETSAM in Madrid, Edinburgh University and as part of her continued involvement with Open House in London.
Experience of other practices and projects were inter-dispersed throughout this period and included working for Tim Ronalds Architects on the Hackney Empire Theatre and carrying out duties under the role of Senior Research Assistant at the University of Hong Kong that included research into different densities of housing and teaching design studio. Elantha now teaches at the University of Bath and is a visiting critic at the Bartlett UCL and the University of Westminster, London and at Belfast Queens University. Most recently, as a Junior Partner at Evans & Shalev Architects, Elantha was the project architect for a new building for Heatherley School of Fine Art in London and helped to produce a competition winning scheme for a new Spa building and complete renovation at Queens Tennis Club, London. Both ARB and RIBA registered, Elantha is also a member of the RIBA's Validation Panel for Schools of Architecture in the UK and worldwide and like Ana Serrano, is a strong believer of putting practice back into education.
Elantha's intuitive approach to design is ballasted by her strong artistic family upbringing, surrounded by artists, architects and musicians and she is, as part of Serrano Evans, creating the opportunity to use and further her skills and aspirations in architecture, design and in the direction of performance.
