“Phill, Mark, Fanny, Madi and the rest of the team at Matz Architects are nothing but wonderful. They are communicative, very organized and most importantly extremely clever. They are also kind, calm, fun, funny and respectful. I approached Phill and asked if he would help me. My job was to repair a leak I had inherited, caused by inappropriate and incompetent design. A few other firms had turned down the job saying it was either too small, too remote and I also believe, too boring and too complicated. Phill from the absolute get go was interested, enthusiastic and above all, willing to help. This turned out to be the first of many relieving moments. Phill always sees the silver lining and this translates so well into his problem solving abilities, of which have been put to the test on numerous occasions. He's passed with flying colours every time. Phill is forever positive and enthusiastic which in my opinion, makes him a joy to deal with and really quite inspiring. This does not mean he is a pushover though, quite the opposite. He is more than happy to have the tough conversations on the clients' behalf, making him a great man to have on side. Good people attract good people meaning Phill and his team have a fine tuned list of recommended contractors who they work well with and who help to make the job run as smoothly as possible. In terms of his design abilities, I personally wouldn’t go anywhere else. He is able to produce designs that cater to my likes and dislikes, with his own spin. Last but not least, he actually listens! He works to the brief but then improves it tenfold, creating solutions beyond my imagination. Choosing to working with Matz Architects is a decision I would make again, without hesitation. It truly has been an enjoyable experience.” - Liz Turner
