Anna is a principal and leads the strategic direction of our Toronto studio.
She specialises in leading large-scale community transformation and intensification projects. She is motivated about creating architecture that resonates beyond its boundaries and gives greater meaning to people’s lives. She oversees the studio's business management and operations, and is committed to mentoring the next generation of studio leaders, both in developing projects and also fostering in an equitable, inclusive and efficient work environment.
Anna currently leads the refurbishment and adaptive reuse of North York’s Yonge Sheppard Centre, one of Toronto’s largest ongoing mixed-use developments. She has also worked on the ONroute Service Centres along Ontario’s 400 and 401 highways and on Downtown Markham, a entirely new mixed-use community under development adjacent to the Rouge River. She was also a member of the Planning, Design and Compliance team that prepared standards for the construction of the Athletes’ Village for the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games.
As the Toronto studio’s Business Head, she manages operations and finance, ensuring the studio is well run and also works closely with the Studio Head to ensure that the strategic direction set for the studio is delivered.
"Placing greater importance on a building’s carbon footprint and resilience will enhance quality of life, strengthen community and minimise its environmental impact."
