About Our Founder
William "Bill" Storrs
A Fort Lauderdale native, Bill Storrs never imagined himself as a second generation architect. Although surrounded by architecture his entire life, Bill was not interested in the field until his initial year at University of Florida. Bill entered school as a Cultural Anthropology major, but quickly realized it didn’t suit him. Bill then registered for his first architecture class and proceeded to enjoy every single class thereafter throughout his tenure at University of Florida. From that moment on, Bill knew architecture was his passion.
After graduating from the University of Florida in 1983 with a Master of Arts in Architecture, Bill joined his father, George D. Storrs, Jr., Architect. Bill and his father then founded Storrs Architect P.A. in 1987. Growing up around his father’s designs and drawings, architecture was built into the framework of who Bill is and how he designs. Bill knows his father influenced his architecture style and experience far beyond anyone else. From his first project, Bill has gravitated towards his father’s timeless style and learned the importance of building trust and credibility with clients. Bill prides himself on the 40 plus years of expertise in architecture he has been able to provide to his South Florida clients and works tirelessly to bring every client’s dream project to reality. Bill continues the work that his father began almost 40 years prior, building the framework of every design with integrity and honesty. By being personally involved in the entire process of designing and implementation of the plans, starting with the initial consultation, preliminary design sketches, the construction documents, permitting process through the completion of the construction process, Bill ensures that every project is completed to the highest architectural standards.
Known not only for his architecture skills, Bill is also known as a leader in the Fort Lauderdale community. Bill has served as the chairman of the Salvation Army ARC Advisory Council, President of the Executives Association of Fort Lauderdale, and is a past president of the Sportfishermen of Broward. Bill has worked extensively throughout the community volunteering his services for many local churches, Habitat for Humanity, and for the Mission of Hope in Haiti. He has been married for over 38 years to his wife Susan, and they have two sons. Bill is also a member of the Rio Vista Community Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Bill hopes to pass down Storrs Architect P.A. to his own son Andrew, just as his father passed down the architecture firm to him. Family is incredibly important to Bill and he takes pride in the fact that Storrs is one of the leading family owned and operated architectural firms in South Florida.
