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.

Six new designers that joined Strada this year continue to impress with the insights they bring to our work.

In January, Chelsey Atkins joined us as a full-time Interior Designer after interning this past fall at Strada while completing her degree. Chelsey holds a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She has been designing interiors for the new Penn Highland apartment building and office spaces for both corporate and non-profit clients.

Andrea Haynes joined the Pittsburgh office in April as an Intern Landscape Architect. As she was wrapping up her Master of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University in 2014, she earned the Piero N. Patri Fellowship in Urban Design, which allowed her to carry out a study of floating wetlands in San Francisco. Andrea is contributing to a number of projects in the office including a multi-unit residential development and a high-tech corporate center.

In May, Brandi Davis joined Strada’s Pittsburgh office as an Intern. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Pennsylvania State University, and she has previously worked at WTW Architects and Wilson Engineering. Currently, she is working on architectural projects including a residential development in the Pittsburgh Tech Corridor and the adaptation of the Appraisers’ Stores, a Historic Register building in Baltimore.

Megan Conceicao, an Interior Designer, began at Strada in July. She previously worked at both HOK and Cannon Design in New York City before moving to Pittsburgh this year. Megan earned her Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from the University of Kentucky. She is envisioning interiors for a number of projects in our studio, including the Distrikt Hotel, residences in Sewickley, and local offices for Google GSX.

Murray Kamara earned his Bachelor of Architecture from Drexel University last year, and he has worked previously at Kelly/Maiello Architects & Planners and the Department of Public Property in Philadelphia. Murray joined Strada’s Philadelphia office in October as an Intern. He is currently working on renovations at Drexel University and Temple University as well as a new 64,000-SF office project at the Navy Yard.

Architect Ian Fishman started working in the Pittsburgh office in October. For several years prior he worked in New York City, first at Gensler and then at Gertler & Wente Architects. Ian earned both his Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Science in Architecture at the University of Maryland. At Strada, he is working on a 12-acre mixed-use development, a new corporate center, and a new mid-rise apartment building.
