Teresa Sapey was born in Italy in 1962. She obtained a doctorate in Architecture at the Politecnico di Torino, and in Fine Art at the Parsons School of Design in Paris.
Teresa Sapey is drawn to fluid spaces, spaces with feelings and emotions. In fact, all her works distil feelings and emotion: the emotion felt on entering a space, and the different feelings this experience arouses.
Throughout her career, from her architecture studio base she has carried out a series of office projects for Mc Cann-Erickson, Tandem, Hispasat and Fox in Madrid; renovation of private homes; the design of shops like Custo in Madrid, Paris, Milan, Las Vegas, Beverly Hills, Dallas, Salamanca and Kuwait; objects like carpets, furniture, suitcases, packaging for perfume; exhibition spaces including Givenchy Perfumes and Delvico in Madrid; industrial premises for FIDESA in Daganzo de Arriba, Madrid, amongst others; schools like the S.E.K. colleges in Villafranca del Castillo and Ciudalcampo, Madrid, and Almería; art galleries; restaurant facades; hotels, bars and news stands.
As an architect, designer and expert in fashion design, she has published several books and is a frequent contributor to the media on décor issues.
"I’m increasingly persuaded that car parks are urban spaces that until now have been largely ignored. I am fascinated by how a place where functionality is the key can at the same time appeal to the emotional side of an individual". A simple iconographic code on the walls leads the guest through the car park. The motifs are a finger pointing to the exit, people running with a dog, a person in a wheel chair... all of which have been rendered by mixing words Éluard’s poem.
Teresa Sapey has created a garage with an interesting play of colour and graphics that "appeals to the emotional side of the individual, but where functionality is key". "On an emotional level I have striven to tell a tale about each person’s right to live their life as they see fit". This sentence is clearly a declaration of intent and reflects a strong commitment to freedom of choice which is at the base of the Silken Puerta América.
