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 20 years. Her affordable housing experience includes award-winning projects in San Francisco as well as San Jose, Los Angeles and Seattle.

Anne brings a deep commitment to community outreach and sustainable design 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 sensitivity to client and user objectives animates her leadership of complex projects with multi-layered client and consultant teams.

Through her volunteer work for organizations such as SPUR and the AIA, Anne is an active advocate for mixed-income, transit-oriented development. Anne serves on Mithun’s Board of Directors and leads the firm’s Mithun | Solomon office in San Francisco.
