Founders and Partners
Bill W. Mazas is one of the founding partners of Mazas Pantazes Architecture and Design. Bill began his studies in Montreaux, Switzerland, majoring in Hospitality. He later went on to run a major resort on the Island of Corfu in Greece. After designing numerous projects in Greece, including resorts and a theme park, Bill decided to return to the United States. He wanted a change of pace and got involved in real-estate development in Florida. Since 2001, Bill has created various companies involved in the design, construction, and management of many hospitality, commercial and multi-family residential projects.
One of the key reasons for the formation of Mazas Pantazes was Bill’s frustration with projects that, although beautifully designed, lacked many of the details required for actual construction. This poor planning resulted in numerous change orders and cost overruns, creating strained relationships between the architect, contractor, and owner. Because of this, Bill and John decided to start a firm that would design only using the latest technologies, involving the client from start to finish. Bill’s eye for detail complements the team, adding that extra attention that can only be seen by the client.
