Architecture has the power to enrich the life of an individual and an organization. The mission of Fender|Andrade Architects is to provide built environments of lasting beauty, value, and function.
Fender|Andrade's design approach is tailored to the specific circumstances of each project. Inventive and responsive solutions are achieved through an in-depth understanding of the program, site, and budget for a project. This approach stems from the conviction that successful environments of lasting value are achieved only when the facility responds to the specific physical, cultural and economic context in which it occurs.
Fender|Andrade is a partnership between Ames Fender - a Fort Worth native, business owner, and fixture among the architectural community; and Fernando Andrade - a 35+ year transplant to Texas, community/civic volunteer, and fellow business owner. They share the same business philosophy: "Do what you love every day and you'll never have to work a day of your life." Their passion for architecture and design has translated into numerous high-profile, award-winning projects in the North Texas area.
Offering full architectural, space planning and documentation services, as well as inter-disciplinary project management, Fender|Andrade's multi-talented professionals are experienced in many building types - corporate, educational, residential, healthcare, hospitality, municipal, industrial, sports and recreation, religious, and retail.
