Stan Panko is responsible for several hundred custom homes on the San Francisco Peninsula, in  addition to other project types throughout his career. He first worked with Anshen & Allen  Architects doing Eichler homes in the early 1960's and later was commissioned to do his first  custom home for Arthur Court in 1964. Mr. Court continues as a client after forty years, which  exemplifies the design excellence and commitment to residential design by Stan Panko. Today his  work is on the San Francisco Peninsula and Hawaii.

Residential Design is about the livability, meeting family needs and providing a strong sense of  place that's called home.

Through careful listening and questioning, homes are designed to express the clients' personalities  and accommodate their needs, including their dreams and visions.

In remodeling and additions, the design of the original home, along with the scale and  neighborhood setting are always factors in working towards a design solution. This is why many of my designs appear to be widely different. You will see numerous styles including Contemporary, Colonial, Craftsman, Bungalow, Mediterranean, Tudor, and California Contemporary Ranch. However, you will find each home has a strong sense of place and reflects the client's needs and personality.
