Testimonials for Living Design

Kevin and Dominique de Villiers:

After many years of wanting to renovate our home we were fortunate to come across Wendy Holmes of Living Design. Our house was a very difficult shape with many nooks and crannies that really constricted our living space. Further we were really struggling with the lack of light in our house as well as a very steep and claustrophobic stair case. Wendy came in and really did a fantastic job in basically rebuilding the whole house in an extremely open and comfortable style with lots of light and living room. The results truly speak volumes as can be seen in the pictures.

We highly recommend Wendy and her team and wish her all the best with her future endeavours.

 

The Rothers:

After years of agonising consideration and desperate to “breath” new life in our old home, we found Wendy at Living Design through scouring the internet.  Renovations was what excited her, whereas a lot of builders we spoke to previously, preferred to start a build from new.

 

Jon Tully:

Wendy of Living Design was invited to come up with ideas in converting my very old Sea Point apartment, which last saw any work done to it in the seventies.

 

Pierre and Hester Lamprecht:

We renovated our house in 2012 using Wendy from Living Design. It was a big and daunting project for us, but it was evident from the start that we were in good hands.

 

Ashleigh Southwood:

I had moved to Cape Town on my own, and was looking for a house to buy so that I could then also relocate my dogs and my cats to come live with me. I had been taken to see a real ‘fixer upper’ in the area that I really wanted to live in, and boy was it in need of updating and some TLC. My first instinct was to walk out and never return. However the estate agent convinced me that it was worth looking at, as it was at an affordable price in a really good neighbourhood, and with a lick of paint and some TLC it could become my forever home for me and my pets.

Johann le roux:

We bought our house, built in the 19th century, with the intention of renovating, after receiving an architect’s input, this seemed like a daunting task. We had extensive plans drawn up by an architect and it seemed that our vision, the character of our house and our budget was being ripped to pieces. The word “renovation” was seen as a future nightmare, if we could not even decide on the plans.

Sandra Bold:

I would highly recommend Wendy to anyone who wants to build or renovate. We spent 3 years interviewing architects, builders and designing ourselves. And there didn’t seem to be an affordable solution to fixing our strangely designed, old, face-brick home.

 

Simon Bold:

I want to say a huge THANK YOU for all of your efforts in building us the house that will be the foundation for the next stage of our lives. You have assisted us in creating the sanctuary to support us engaging the world from and a place where Taluke can grow and play feeling nurtured and supported.

John Brown:

Wendy Holmes and her team from Living Space were contracted to build a second dwelling on our property in Longkloof, Hout Bay.

The house was designed by an architect but Wendy provided much more than one would expect from a building contractor. As far as the build was concerned, Wendy demonstrated exceptional organizational and project management skills and the building project was completed on time and within budget.

Johann Labuschagne:

I am delighted! You have managed to turn our house into a wonderful and attractive home. I must please ask you to please pass on our thanks to your team for the excellent work which they produced.

Hamann:

In planning our renovation, I asked my friends and colleagues of building contractors they could personally recommend. Upon hearing a glowing reference of Wendy Holmes of Living Design,

Nicholas Stein:

We used Wendy for the renovation of our home. We would happily recommend her to others looking to do the same. Wendy spent countless hours revising and tinkering with our plans until we were all happy with them. During the building phase. We spent little time on site or worrying. Wendy took care of that! She did a great job of keeping the project moving along swiftly, as well as keeping a tight lid on costs. Very few in the industry would try and talk you down on price on various items, but Wendy often advised us on cheaper alternatives. The subcontractors Wendy uses are all first class. It was also great that we only had to deal with her, while she would deal with all the subcontractors and other parties. We are thrilled with the overall product Wendy delivered.

Clive and Jeanne Nussbaum:

Wendy Holmes of LIVING DESIGN and her team moved onto our property towards the end of January 2014. Within 12 weeks, under Wendy’s vastly experienced guidance, our rather tired looking, dated home had been transformed into a unique, contemporary space. Wendy’s talent is to visualize spatial potential and achieve what is possible with appropriate structural modifications as directed by ones financial limitations.

Maryse Barak:

Hi Dear Wendy

This is a huge thank you to you. You have created a most beautiful apartment for us. I am so appreciative of the way in which you managed this whole process of working with us . I felt assured and gently guided by your expertise, care and concern to make sure that we had a home that best reflected our intentions. You have been impeccably present and available at all times . Your direct and pragmatic approach made it easy to navigate the challenges and your exceptional ability to see possibilities and to offer us choices in keeping with our intentions, all came together fabulously well.
