Founded in 1996 by spouses Patrick Ousey and Pam Chandler, FAB Architecture LLC has established itself as one of Austin’s leading design firms. The office is committed to spirited design, integrity in construction, and efficient project management.
Ousey and Chandler honed their talents in some of Los Angeles’ and Austin’s finest design offices. Together and individually, they have designed and managed a full spectrum of project types, including master planning, multi-family and affordable housing, office buildings, and recreational facilities. Since returning to Texas, their work has concentrated on carefully designed custom residences, sophisticated restaurants, and gracious residential and commercial interiors.
The first designs by FAB Architecture were small-scale residential projects. Through the process of working with clients whose vision of a better living environment outpaced limited budgets, Ousey and Chandler developed a keen sense of what it means for design to respond to the needs of a client and the opportunities of a site within these constraints. The office communicates with owners and construction professionals in order to manage expectations, sustainability issues, cost, and schedule, while maintaining the aesthetic concerns of a project.
Today, the office enjoys the privilege of being an award winning firm receiving recognition from both the Austin and San Antonio chapters of the American Institute of Architects. In addition, many of their projects have been featured in local and national publications. FAB Architecture remains a small, design-focused firm where registered architects, Ousey and Chandler, lead a team toward a common goal of producing quality design.
