As President and Senior Principal at Glavé & Holmes Architecture in Richmond, Virginia, Randy Holmes has been involved in the design of a wide range of higher education, cultural, hospitality and residential projects throughout Virginia and the southeast. Randy’s focus is context-driven and as such is inspired by the culture, history, and surroundings of a community or place.

Randy’s 35 years of expertise have allowed him to create and transform places including over a dozen projects composing a new campus at Christopher Newport University, the William Smith Morton Library at Union Presbyterian Seminary, the Morven Carriage Museum, and Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, among others. These significant architectural contributions have sought to enhance the lives of those who use them; thus the firm’s byline, elevating the human spirit.

Randy’s projects have received awards and recognition from Architectural Digest, the American Institute of Architects, the Institute for Classical Art and Architecture, and American School & University. In 2013, he was honored with the Award for Distinguished Achievement from AIA Virginia for his noteworthy accomplishment in design, practice, and education.

Randy received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Architecture from the University of Virginia. He has been married to Michaux for more than 30 years, and they enjoy time with their three grown children as well as their dog, Ellie who thinks she’s one of the children. He’s actively involved with Stony Point Church as an elder, teacher and musician.
