Savin Couëlle

Born in 1929, Savin Couëlle graduated in Architecture from the prestigious École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts of Paris, while designing at the same time poet Jacques Prévert’s apartment. He was art director Georges Wakhévitch’s assistant in Spain and worked for well-known American and European film productions such as “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves”. In 1962 he joined his father Jacques, an architect himself, to design the Cala di Volpe hotel in the Costa Smeralda. He never left Sardinia since then, although he participated in a number of projects worldwide, and developed a style that created a harmonious balance between interiors and interiors, architecture and sculpture.
