Kwendeche, FAIA, NOMA, is a licensed architect and the sole proprietor of his practice, produksi arymeus arsitektur based in the Lamb-McSwain House in Little Rock, the historic property his grandfather built in 1925, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Kwendeche has won accolades for transforming a dilapidated house into a community gathering place known as the Washington Heritage House in the Little Rock Central High National Historic District. The Washington Heritage House is distinctive in that its exterior appears as it did during the Little Rock Crisis of 1957. As well, his work on the restoration of the Daisy Bates House (A National Historic Landmark); the Scipio A. Jones House; and the historic John Lee Webb House within Hot Springs’ Pleasant Street Historic District) are current examples of his concentration on historic preservation.

He is currently doing research on a school in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, whose legacy thrived during Marcus Garvey’s Back-to-Africa movement. Kwendeche is a 1967 graduate of Little Rock Central High School where he was a member of the Draftsmen’s Society, an Army veteran and a 1976 graduate of Howard University School of Architecture and Planning in Washington, D.C.
