Italian couple Gloria Trevisan and Marco Gottardi are understood to have lost their lives in the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower
Trevisan and Gottardi lived on the 23rd floor of the 24-storey tower, and have been unaccounted for since the fire broke out in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Trevisan had started a job as an architectural assistant at Peregrine Bryant Architecture Building and Conservation, in south west London, just over a week ago.
Partner at the practice Kitty Bryant confirmed that Trevisan had been missing since the fire broke out.
In a statement to the AJ, the practice said: ‘Gloria had recently joined the practice and was an extremely promising and talented graduate. There is no doubt that she would have had a very succesful career and her loss is a great loss to the profession.
‘Above all, our thoughts are with the family and friends of both Gloria and Marco.’
Gottardi worked as an architectural assistant at east London-based Creative Ideas & Architecture Office, according to the practice’s website. The practice has confirmed that Gottardi has been missing since the Grenfell Tower fire.
At least 30 people are now confirmed to have died in the west London fire, with the BBC reporting that the death toll could reach 76.
