Wendell Burnette, FAIA, is an award-winning architect whose projects reflect many of the same key values as the late Frank Welch: space and light, context and place, organic materials that are carefully crafted, and respect for the environment and landscapes in which we live. Burnette’s work has been featured in over 150 publications worldwide, and has received many prestigious awards, including a P/A Design award from Architecture magazine, three “Record House” awards from Architectural Record magazine, and a National AIA Honor Award. 

His work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and Wendell is also a laureate of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Projects include custom residences located in Arizona and nationally, public commissions including the Palo Verde Library/Maryvale Community Center, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, and the Scottsdale Teen Center, and resorts/spas worldwide including the much-acclaimed Amangiri Resort.
