Wendling Designs is an architectural firm which designs renovations, additions, and new constructions for residences and agricultural businesses. Located in Darien, IL, this company services the states of Illinois and Wisconsin. Owner and principal architect Debra Wendling has over 25 years of architectural experience, and started Wendling Designs in 1997.

This company creates architectural designs for a variety of purposes, including residential additions, interior and exterior remodeling, custom houses, commercial buildings, retail buildings, medical offices and other buildings, and agricultural buildings. Designs can be modified to incorporate environmentally friendly building elements, such as passive solar design to take advantage of location and solar absorption, increasing energy efficiency and decreasing the home or business owner's carbon footprint.

For additions and renovations, Wendling can build an entirely new style of home for the homeowner, focusing on their interests and design inspirations, or blend the new addition directly into the existing home's style. Some projects that Wendling has undertaken include remodeling a second floor and kitchen, adding a room with a particular roof style, and remodeling a ranch-style house to incorporate elements of Asian design and the Arts and Crafts Movement. The firm has also built barns and entire homes in a variety of styles, ranging from ranches to cottages with small peaks and gables.

Services provided in addition to design work include a free initial consultation, a detailed proposal outlining the phases and fees, zoning and site assessments, existing structure assessments for additions and renovations, preliminary design sketches, and complete design sketches for permit applications and construction purposes.
