Who we are


Whole House Home RenovationsLiving Design, owned by Wendy Holmes, is based in Cape Town. A small niche Architectural Design, Construction & Project Management Company, specializing in home renovations. 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 even the ugliest houses and to creatively convert them to suit her clients’ needs .Typically from old ordinary houses into beautiful homes, without losing the character of the home. The clients needs and dreams are carefully listened to and with years of experience, she designs the changes to give them their dream home, often making changes they didn’t think possible. Taking full responsibility for the entire project, means that she only project managers her preferred sub-contractors. She is also a very “Hands On” project manager thereby ensuring surprisingly short construction programmes but at the same time controlling quality and cost.


However she will take on only the Design & Planning jobs, taking the plans right through to Council approval. The construction and project management is a separate side to the business, so she does not have to be appointed to do the construction. However she does not project manage other contactors.

We are grateful to Wendy for providing us with our new family home. We recommend her to anyone needing assistance with rejuvenating a home.

With added space, pool, lovely garden, larger terrace. We are thrilled with the result and the way our home has turned out, thanks to Wendy and her team!

We love the larger kitchen, bright spacious living areas and general flow of the house. We are very grateful for her guidance, her team and her suppliers.
