20 questions to Teresa Sapey, the queen of color has been designing high-voltage spaces for more than thirty years

Energetic and very Italian(although adopted from Madrid), to the architect Teresa Sapey you will recognize her by the white and orange, the use of pop plastic, her risky choices and the point of humor in her projects. She likes to design part of the furniture in her interiors and from her studio, in addition to dream houses, she reactivates disused urban spaces such as parking lots, bridges or tunnels. With Sapey fun is guaranteed.
