32mq is a young international architectural and design practice established in 2010 by Gina Furia, Giovanna Gaeta, Pasquale Guarino and Luigi Nefasto in Italy. In 2016 Gina started the separated office branch based in Royal Tunbridge Wells.
With offices in Italy and UK, the practice focuses on creating unexpected special modern spaces that allow its inhabitants to thrive. Each project starts exploring the physical and cultural qualities of places through investigation and observation, resulting in spaces that are unique and responsive to the environment and the client’s brief.
We take an active approach to the creative design process, developing ideas through sketches, models and conversation. We collaborate with clients through the building process taking an iterative approach from concept design to completion continually testing and refining the design and more efficiently combining professionalism with technical competence and flair.
We work with local contractors, craftsman and suppliers to pursue the successful completion of the project.
Projects currently in development include refurbishing a London apartment and a new wine cellar for the Coco Retro bistro in Royal Tunbridge Wells.
