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.

Strada is delighted to announce that Bakery Living I, the lively new residential building it designed in Pittsburgh’s East End, received a Best in American Living Award (BALA) from the National Association of Home Builders. BALA winners were announced on January 25, 2016 in Las Vegas.

Bakery Living took top honors in the category, “Development of 5 Stories & Over, For Rent,” earning a Platinum award. The jury applauded the project for nurturing a culture of social interaction through a series of shared spaces that total over 9,000 SF. An open courtyard, indoor/outdoor swimming pool, a grill terrace, bar, and game room, fitness center, and bike trails are just a few of the uber cool amenities that residents get to enjoy right in the blossoming Bakery Square neighborhood.
