Anne Schopf


Partner Emeritus, Senior Principal, Director of Design

“I am driven by my instinct to create order and serenity within an increasingly chaotic and dislocated world. I do that by re-connecting to the diversity of Mother Nature’s gifts, the seasons and the cycles of life. My favorite activity: forest bathing – any season, any location.”

Working across all studios in the firm in her role as a Senior Principal and Director of Design, Anne continually challenges teams to question deeply and listen intently to support the firm’s goal of creating healthy and sustainable spaces for their clients and the communities they serve.

Under her leadership, Mahlum was recognized with the 2014 American Institute of Architects Northwest and Pacific Region (AIA NWPR) Firm Award.

A dedicated champion of design excellence and environmental stewardship, Anne’s projects and professional activism continually enhance the discourse on design and place. With more than 80 regional and national design awards to her credit, she continually strives for the highest quality of design within strict parameters of performance.

Anne is the recipient of the 2013 AIA NWPR Medal of Honor, the highest commendation presented to an individual by the region, recognizing excellence in design, the practice of architecture, architectural education, and service to the profession. Elevated to Fellow in the AIA in 2007, she received a Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Science in both Civil Engineering and Building Sciences from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She is a registered architect in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, New York, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Louisiana, Hawaii, Alaska, Missouri, and New Jersey.
