Who we are


702_sba_logoLiving Design is a small Cape Town and Langebaan based company owned by Wendy Holmes, specializing in house renovations and the creation of beautiful homes, typically from old and ordinary houses. Whilst she also take on the building of new houses, Wendy’s passion lies in the transformation of houses from ordinary to spectacular, her main strength being her vision and ability to see potential in old buildings and to creatively convert them to suit her clients’ needs. She is also a very ‘hands on’ project manager thereby ensuring surprisingly short construction programmes but at the same time controlling quality and cost.

Architectural Designs, House Renovations and Construction Project Management


Designing a new home is a completely different experience to renovating an existing home.

Hout Bay Renovations

I would highly recommend Wendy to anyone who wants to build or renovate. We spent 3 years interviewing architects, builders and designing ourselves.

Constantia Renovations

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.
