Glavé & Holmes Architecture had the pleasure of hosting two amazing summer interns this year!

Olivia Kramer came to G&HA from the University of Miami where she is studying Architecture and Business Management. She spent her time working on the Science Museum of Virginia Master Plan as a member of our Cultural Studio.

Ryan Gebhart is pursuing his Master of Architecture at Catholic University. During his time with our Higher Education Studio, Ryan working on various projects at the University of Virginia.

As they head back to school, we wanted to catch up with them on their experience at our office in Richmond.

what did you enjoy about your time at g&ha?

Olivia: I was provided with meaningful work as an intern, and enjoyed the welcoming studio culture of Glavé & Holmes. Each day I felt included, supported and respected. The people at Glavé are not only talented, but genuine, motivating and produce great work, and that is not easy to find. 

Being a foodie, the diverse food scene of RVA is impressive. I was never bored with close proximity to the beach, mountains, vineyards and other prominent cities. As I got to know my studio through working on projects together, I also got plugged into other social activities, like beach volleyball, to get to know other staff members. Even though a summer may go by quick, make it count.

Ryan: I really enjoyed being part of this firm and truly appreciated the scope of work I was involved in, especially the attention to detail it all required. The comradery and devotion to excellent architecture that I experienced here in my short three months is incredibly inspiring. I believe it has something to do with the firm’s motto and it is wondrously executed in this office. I’m looking forward to returning to grad school at Catholic University of America in DC for the new semester, taking with me everything that I’ve learned this summer.
