About Strada

Strada means “street” in Italian. Streets matter to us. They’re the fundamental infrastructure of our cities and the core of our civic lives. They’re the connections between buildings, people, and public spaces. This is why we’re so inspired by them and it’s a shared commitment to these values that brought our principals together. Just as people mingle on city streets, our office is a place where we freely exchange ideas, challenging and inspiring one another to create exceptional work.

A national award for Market Square Place

11.2012Design, Firm News, Places
By Leah Patgorski

This summer, we were elated to learn that the Market Square Place project would be honored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP). The catch: we were instructed to keep quiet about the award until the NTHP ceremony, which finally took place on Friday, November 2nd. Therefore, we are now free to trumpet the news.

Principal John Martine and Associate Sean Beasley represented the project team to accept the award, which was given to 22 projects across the country. Click this link or the image below for a video glimpse of the awards ceremony.

A few words from the National Trust’s press release about Market Square Place:
“Through a cooperative effort stemming from a public-private partnership, the series of historic buildings were brought together into a single mixed-use complex that has erased decades of neglect and created a new eco-friendly community.”

And on the purpose of their awards:
“The National Preservation Awards are bestowed on distinguished individuals, nonprofit organizations, public agencies and corporations whose skill and determination have given new meaning to their communities through preservation of our architectural and cultural heritage. These efforts include citizen attempts to save and maintain important landmarks; companies and craftsmen whose work restores the richness of the past; the vision of public officials who support preservation projects and legislation in their communities; and educators and journalists who help Americans understand the value of preservation.”

We share this recognition with others on the team: Millcraft Industries – Owner; Tedco Construction – GC; Atlantic Engineering Services – Structural; Tower Engineering – MEP; Historic Preservation Services; as well as Dennis Marsico – Project Photographer.
