On November 3, 2019, we lost our beloved founder, Ken Condray. Ken did more than dream about what could be in the realm of architecture.

After graduating from Texas Tech University with a degree in Architecture in 1984, Ken founded Condray Design Group in 1992. His vision was always to put the client first.

Because of Ken, it was clear to every architect, intern, interior designer, and staff member at Condray Design Group that every client was to be treated with respect and that the goal was to build a lasting relationship with them. This attitude has been a major contributor toward our firm’s success. He also believed that one of the most important parts of architecture was listening. When engaging a client, he encouraged active listening to ensure that each collaborative discussion ended in a design and that the client loved. Ken’s philosophy of design revolved around reflecting the client’s unique vision and not his own.

Outside of work, Ken loved to travel and explore the world. He spent time reading books with his dog Piper, listening to music, and spending time with his loving family. His quiet, strong leadership, kindness and love touched not only those closest to him, but also those in the community he served so diligently. His legacy will live on in his beautiful design work and in the profound example he left behind to listen and put others first.

At Condray Design Group, we will continue to live by something Ken stood by: “We help these dreams become a built reality.”
