Glavé & Holmes Architecture (G&HA) is pleased to announce the firm earned two new awards at the American Institute of Architects Richmond Chapter’s 2014 Annual Design Awards event held on April 10.
Glavé & Holmes won an Award of Merit from AIA Richmond for work on Washington Hall at Washington and Lee University. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Washington Hall (c. 1824) is the central building in Washington and Lee’s historic Colonnade. A gallery exhibiting contributions of George Washington in addition to important administrative functions, such as the offices of the President, Provost, and University Development, fill the 24,400 square feet of the elegant three-story building. The renovation restored vibrancy and functionality to the significant building, while ensuring eligibility for tax credits and LEED Silver certification.
Lori Garrett, AIA, LEED Green Associate, was awarded the Marcellus Wright Jr. Award, which is considered the AIA Richmond Chapter’s highest individual award. The award is given in honor of one of the Chapter’s founding members, Marcellus Wright Jr., by the Chapter Board, based on nominations by the Honors Committee, to a long time Chapter member who has demonstrated continuous service to the profession through his or her work. Lori was honored with the award for her service to the chapter and the industry. As founder of Richmond Women in Design, she led its transition to become a Committee of AIA Richmond and has been a member of AIA Richmond since 2007, as well as a member of its predecessor, James River AIA, in previous years.
