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 outreach and sustainable design to all her projects, which range in scale and program from supportive studios for formerly homeless seniors, to the revitalization of isolated public housing sites into walkable, resilient, 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. A notable example is Casa Adelante at 2060 Folsom, recognized with a national 2023 AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE) Top Ten Award for exemplary social, ecological and economic performance.

Anne serves on Mithun’s board of directors and leads the firm’s San Francisco office. She is a longtime board member of the Bay Area Housing Action Coalition. Through her work with organizations including AIA and SPUR, Anne advocates for diversity in the profession and expanded access to affordable housing.
