When we were ready to undertake our complete demolish and rebuild home renovation in Leichhardt, in Sydney's inner west, Jessica Matson was the obvious choice for us.
I had been referred to Jessica by a business colleague, and prior to our house Jessica had already designed the new fit out of our recording studio/television production facility.
Coming from a technical/construction background in heavy industry myself, I had very strong ideas on what we wanted to achieve with our build. Jessica's ability to realise our vision, and expand on it with her creativity and experience delivered us a design that melts the original 100 year old semi-terrace into open plan living. Our home is full of light, feels wonderful to live in, and flows seamlessly from one part of the house to the other.
As an owner builder I still have much weekend work to complete the build, but now that we are back living in the house we can't wait to get the final result.
We had a lengthy and difficult battle with Leichhardt Council during the DA process, including an appeal with the Land & environment Court. The whole process took nearly 4 years. Throughout this time Jessica's ongoing advice and ability to think outside the box was no doubt a major contributing factor that resulted with us winning every detail of our appeal.
On top of all this we formed a friendship with Jessica and we will for sure use her services for any project that comes up in the future. I can not recommend 'Jessica Matson Architect' more highly.
