Serving the San Francisco Bay Area with an emphasis in Portola Valley and Palo Alto, Stoecker and Northway Architects, Inc. has provided architectural services to a variety of clients since it was founded in 1978. The principals,  Bob Stoecker, AIA and John Northway, AIA bring to the firm years of valuable experience in bringing our clients’ dreams to fruition.  This experience includes new homes,  and residential additions and remodels, as well as commercial, educational, health care, and industrial projects.

Our primary goal is to provide high-quality personalized service.  Every project is unique; we pride ourselves on developing designs that are responsive to our client’s needs while respecting the constraints that apply to the property.   Functionality, schedule, and costs are carefully monitored throughout all phases of a project to ensure client satisfaction with our completed work.

Stoecker and Northway Architects, Inc. is committed to the use of sustainable products and systems that preserve the environment, reduce energy consumption, and enhance user comfort.  We are experienced in green building technologies, passive and active solar applications and geothermal design.  Our architectural staff includes LEED accredited professionals.

We work with a local team of structural, mechanical, electrical, and Title 24 Energy consultants to provide a full range of services.

We believe our firm has achieved its success through the combination of valuable years of practical experience and our close attention to the concerns of our clients.
