Anne Torney



Anne is an architect who has made affordable multi-family housing and transit-oriented urban infill the focus of her work for more than 30 years. She brings a deep commitment to community voices and ecological performance to all her projects, which range from supportive studios for formerly homeless seniors, to the revitalization of isolated public housing sites into walkable, mixed-use and mixed-income communities. Her affordable housing experience includes award-winning projects in San Francisco as well as San Jose, Los Angeles and Seattle. Notable examples include Casa Adelante at 2060 Folsom, and Sansome and Broadway Family Housing, a CNU Charter Award honoree.

Anne serves on Mithun’s board of directors and leads the firm’s San Francisco office. She is a longtime board member of the Housing Action Coalition. An active member of AIA and the Urban Land Institute, Anne is a frequent contributor to conversations on equity, affordable housing and diversity in the profession.
