Living Design is a small company owned by Wendy Holmes, specializing in the design and construction of house renovations and the creation of beautiful homes, in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town & Langebaan, typically from old and ordinary houses. Whilst she also takes 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.
Wendy’s involvement doesn’t end with the completion of the building as she assists clients with selection of finishes and even with advice on soft finishes and gardens if required. There are various aspects to what Wendy offers depending on the stage at which she enters the project and clients’ needs, namely consulting only at an hourly rate; conceptual design and sketch plans; formal plans and submission to and approval by council at an agreed fee; and project management and building.
