Chryssa Thoua

Researcher & Architectural Assistant
DiplArchEng MSc

Chryssa joined Architype in 2014 as a researcher, working on a research project in collaboration with Coventry University. Her work is now split equally between research and architecture.

Chryssa has recently completed the evaluation for the internal environmental quality of a selection of Architype school projects. The findings from the research feeds directly back into our design process, informing the aspects which can be developed and improved upon, besides providing evidence on the health and well being of current building users and building performance. Chryssa has had a busy year disseminating the results of the monitoring at conferences and events nation wide.

Chryssa is able to apply her practical knowledge of design and build to her current projects in the office, ensuring a well-rounded and pragmatic approach. She is currently working on the detailed design for a visitor centre on a picturesque site in the Surrey Hills.


Chryssa completed her undergraduate studies in 2011 studying at the AUTH School of Architecture, Thessaloniki, in her home country of Greece. In 2013, Chryssa completed an MSc in Environmental Design and Engineering, at University College London, where she developed her interests in analysis methodology, evaluation and improvement of the indoor environment.
