Gloria Kloter on Carving a Path Toward Success as a Purpose-Driven Architect and Interior Designer

The professional endeavors that people embark on do not only serve as a means for building a financially secure future. For countless go-getters, one’s career also stands as an avenue for inspiring others and giving back to their communities. In the case of Gloria Kloter, the award-winning architect behind the powerhouse Glow Architects, her efforts are both geared toward cementing her position within the industry and impacting lives and communities for the better. 

Throughout her career, Gloria Kloter has acted as a beacon of hope for other numerous aspirants wishing to make a name for themselves on foreign soil. This Architecture Design graduate, who also holds a Master’s in Architecture of Interiors, has over sixteen years of combined national and international experience. She operated her first company in the Dominican Republic, receiving credit for the development of various types of commercial and residential projects.

With the long list of achievements under her belt, it could be easy to assume that Gloria Kloter had it easy. But, moving to America under the assumption that she could continue as an architect proved to be a challenging feat since her license — as well as most of the foreign architect licenses — was not valid in the USA. This experience would come to fuel her drive to mentor immigrant architects.

Today, Gloria Kloter stands at the helm of Glow Architects, spearheading its rise through the ranks as an international architecture and interior design studio. Based in Tampa, Florida, this purpose-driven venture is on a mission to create meaningful spaces that creatively and aesthetically express its clients’ true selves.

Since its establishment, Glow Architects has managed to impress clients and industry peers alike for its consistency in translating the architectural vision of every client into reality. On top of empowering clients by making them part of the design process, the highly capable team running this esteemed institution also makes sure to shed light on the design process through 3D rendering and other forms of realistic visualization, effective communication, and transparency. “We deliver spaces that give people a sense of ownership and pride, look the way they envisioned it, function the way they need it, and are built within their budget,” shares this widely-acknowledged company. 

The women-owned venture belongs to the AIA (American Institute of Architects), NCARB (National Council of Architectural Registration Boards), ASID (American Society of Interior Designers), and NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association). As an extension of its founder, Glow Architects is immensely dedicated to providing excellent service and will continue to carve a path toward the summit of the industry.

In the coming years, Gloria Kloter plans to propel Glow Architects to greater heights. She also aims to remain a guiding hand for fellow foreign architects pursuing their licenses in the USA, providing them with a supportive community through her private group on Facebook called Foreign Architects.

Apart from setting her sights on becoming a household name in the architectural field, Gloria Kloter looks forward, as well, to sharing her story to budding professionals and inspiring them with how she succeeded despite growing up amidst difficult odds, adapting to a different country with a different language, and making her dreams come true in a cutthroat industry.
