He was born in 1839 in Copenhagen, the son of the carpenter Christian Gottfried Lendorf and Vilhelmine Nielsen. A journeyman carpenter in 1855, he attended the School of Architecture until 1863. He was employed by Ferdinand Meldahl on the construction of Fredericia Town Hall (1859) and later worked on the reconstruction of Frederiksborg Palace (1863–64), also under Meldahl. Lendorf managed his own firm in Odense (1864–83) and then in Copenhagen. He was drawing teacher at Odense Technical College (1846–83). Lendorf participated in the Nordic Exhibition of 1888. He was honored as a Knight of the Dannebrog, was awarded the Dannebrogordenens Hæderstegn, and served on the board of the Foreningen for Alderdoms-Friboliger. He was a Freemason.

Lendorf was married on May 12, 1863 in Copenhagen to Sophie Christiane Jørgine Anchersen (3 October 1843, Vejle - 5 January 1901, Frederiksberg). He died in 1918 at Bagsvaerd and was buried at Solbjerg Parkkirkegård.
