Raleigh, NC, June 02, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- David Cole, 26, and Will Lambeth, 21, have joined Frank Harmon Architect, an award-winning firm in Raleigh, as architectural interns.
Originally from Charlotte, NC, Cole moved to Raleigh in 1999 to pursue a master’s degree in architecture at North Carolina State University’s College of Design where Frank Harmon, FAIA, also serves as an associate professor.
“Frank [Harmon] was a professor of mine, and I’ve always been very impressed with his work,” Cole said. “I also appreciate the fact that sustainability is of interest to him.”
Cole’s father is landscape architect Michael Cole of ColeJenest & Stone in Charlotte and his grandfather is Robert Cole, formerly of TVA Architects in Portland, Oregon. Both were NCSU graduates.
Will Lambeth, a Greensboro native, is a rising senior at NCSU, where his father, Thomas Lambeth, graduated in both product design and landscape architecture. The senior Lambeth is now chairman of the Interior Architecture program at UNC-Greensboro.
“This is the best place I could ask to be,” Lambeth said about his new position. “Frank was also a professor of mine, I love his work. There’s such substance in it, rather than just flash. I also like the size of his office, and I enjoy the types of scales he works in. All of his projects are very client-based.”
Harmon’s firm is widely recognized as a successful training ground for young architects, many of whom have gone on to found their own firms. Located in a former industrial warehouse building on Mountford Street, Harmon and his small staff work in a casual setting that recalls a university architecture studio. In 2005, Frank Harmon Architect was named “Top Firm of the Year” by Residential Architect magazine.
