Architects honour Grenfell couple at fundraising concert

Gloria Trevisan and Marco Gottardi

Spencer de Grey, Brian Waters and couple’s employers raise funds for architecture scholarship

The mother of Gloria Trevisan has described the heartache of visiting the office where the young architecture graduate was working when she died in the Grenfell Tower fire a year ago today.

Emanuela Disaro thanked her daughter’s employer, conservation architect Peregrine Bryant, for giving her the job that allowed her dreams to come true.

She still has pictures and voice messages from Gloria describing her walk into the office in historic Bishops Palace, Fulham, on her first day in the job. Within days the 26-year-old would be working on a project to convert Soane’s stable block at Wren’s Royal Hospital in Chelsea.
