Ana Borden was brought on board to assist with the bar design, which is the focal point of the restaurant. Immediately, she proved herself as a competent and reliable resource. Ana was able to translate our ideas into a fixed form, while helping us negotiate around architectural and design obstacles. She coordinated with our contractor, subcontractors, and vendors to provide a complete and refined product within our limited time requirements. Ultimately we received a remarkable final product that blends seamlessly with the rest of our interior. There is no doubt we will be consulting Ana for future projects.

Executive Vice President of Bobby Hebert's Cajun Cannon
Ana is a dedicated and focused project architect who was able to successfully execute a very complex and fast paced education project in her role as the project architect. The project team included a number of specialty engineering and equipment consultants that Ana coordinated and pushed towards a common design goal and schedule.

Ana and I worked together on a complex healthcare renovation project. Ana was reliable, knowledgeable, and thorough. In the fast paced construction industry it is key to have a design partner like Ana who knows the job and gets you answers and responses right away. I would definitely recommend her and look forward to working together on another project.
Ted Reichert
Senior Project Manager at Berglund Construction
Ana served as Project Architect on two difficult healthcare renovation projects; Shriners Hospital for Children ICU and PACU Renovation, and LaRabida Childrens Hospital 2nd Floor Patient Unit Renovation. She provided both design and construction administration expertise in order to complete these projects successfully. Both clients appreciated her diligence and commitment toward completing the project on time and on budget.

We worked with Ana on designing a complex, two-level porch with additional second level storage room. It was important that we match the architectural style of our contemporary home, and Ana did not disappoint. Her design maximized every inch of a very tight space and tied seamlessly into our home and pool design. She spent time listening to what we wanted, pitching ideas, and then delivering a design that totally wowed us. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Ana and her team on another project.

Client of Contemporary Addition Design
Ana designed drawings for a complete remodel of our home. She has been wonderful to work with, meeting my husband and I at locations and times convenient for us, dealing with all of our personality quirks, and helping us realize which improvements would be the best investments. She helped us through the many hiccups, big and small, throughout the year-long project, made recommendations from lighting stores to contractors, and everything imaginable in-between. I could go on and on about how wonderful my experience working with her has been. I would highly recommend Ana and AMB2 Architects. Thank you for all you have done for us!
Melissa Day,
Client of Complete Historic Renovation on Freret Street
My project was a complete renovation and addition in a historic neighborhood. Ana's exterior / interior architecture drawings and design recommendations resulted in a spectacularly beautiful and authentic final result. In particular, she assisted me in navigating the challenging layers of City regulation which delayed the project. This portion of the project included regular liaison with City Planners and Staff. Her attention to detail and ability to interpret and speak the language of city planners, engineers and architects was invaluable. I highly recommend Ana Batista Borden.

Client of Complete Historic Renovation and Addition in the Irish Channel
We hired Ana and AMB2 to design a second-story balcony area with a spiral staircase leading to the pool deck below. We also wanted to incorporate a small outdoor kitchen by the pool under this balcony addition. Space was definitely a constraint, but Ana listened to our concept and ideas and incorporated them into a great design. She met with us regularly throughout the design process to get our input and to tweak the blueprints. And, very importantly, she was very patient with us.

Client of Contemporary Addition Design Old Metairie neighborhood social media page shared about the conversation she had with a house guest in her newly renovated and cottage addition, ". . . and the guy could not believe that there was an addition on the house! I had to explain to him 3 times where the house used to end because he said it looks so seamless. Just another testament to your great work!"
Andrea B.
Client of Old Metairie Addition
Ana recently gave us a consultation about a possible addition to our home. She was very responsive coordinating the meeting. When she arrived, she listened to what we said and offered us her advice based on what we told her. She also gave us several alternative options as well. She was easy to talk to, creative, open, and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!
