A warm welcome to Teresa Tognetti, who recently joined the spacelab_ team as a senior designer. Teresa graduated as an Architect in Venezuela, South America and has 12 years experience in a series of world class architectural practices between the UK, Europe & South America. After her studies, Teresa co-founded her own design practice and worked on a range of projects from retail to mixed-use. But, her motivation for exploring different countries led her to Colombia and now the UK where she decided to work within a larger team. Teresa has won many interior design competitions for clients in the retail, workplace & hospitality sectors. She describes herself as a friendly, motivated person who always gives more than 100% with a smile. What inspires you?

Travelling and exploring new cities, I like to get to know different cultures and understand how they respond to a common problem. Another key source of inspiration is a good work environment, where people are motivated to do a great job and always support each other. What do you like the most about your work?

That we can make our ideas a reality. The fact that we can work and develop our designs side-by-side with clients, consultants and builders and, as a result, see the impact it has on the day-to-day life of those who inhabit the space. What would your ideal project be?

A project that could link the public space with the coworking concept (merging the inside and outside). What made you want to join the lab_?

Their friendly people and their collaborative culture. If you could change one thing within the industry, what would it be?

Hybrid working has helped people improve their day-to-day life, I think the next step in the industry is to reduce overwork to ensure people have a healthy balance between life and work.
