Our highest priority is to have every project conclude with a happy client.
Each project is unique and we pride ourselves on providing high-quality personalized service. We believe every design needs to be responsive to our client’s needs while respecting the constraints that may apply to a project. Design integrity, functionality, schedule, and costs are carefully monitored by working closely and collaboratively with all members of the project team to ensure a client’s satisfaction with their project.
Every member of our firm works together to reinforce a high standard of customer service and strong team work. Nurturing an environment of collaboration and support, we extend the same level of care and attention to every client, regardless of project scale, budget or type.
We believe in being good stewards of the environment. We are committed to the use of products and systems that preserve the environment, reduce energy consumption, and enhance user comfort. We strive to work together with our clients to understand the latest technologies and opportunities that can enhance their projects in environmentally responsible ways while achieving their goals.
With a strong history of repeat clientele and referrals, we believe this is a testament to our firm’s commitment to placing the highest priority on our clients’ concerns and delivering projects that are beautiful, comfortable, functional and timeless.
Retired Principals, Robert Stoecker and John Northway, were classmates in the architectural program at Stanford University. In 1978, they founded Stoecker and Northway Architects and the company’s long-term residency in Palo Alto helped them establish strong roots in the Peninsula, affording the firm special opportunities to work with a wide variety of discerning clients in Portola Valley, Palo Alto, Menlo Park and surrounding cities.
Current Principals, Alena Campagna and Cynthia Muñoz, also met as classmates while in the architectural graduate program of UC Berkeley, and have been with Stoecker and Northway since 1996 and 1997, respectively. Together, they combine decades of valuable experience and expertise in bringing clients’ dreams to fruition and navigating clients through the increasingly complex processes of each project’s jurisdiction. Their broad range of experience includes new homes, residential additions and remodels, mixed-use, commercial, retail, educational, health care, and institutional projects.
