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.

Lab space gets a tune-up

About the project

Converting an automotive engine lab that had been piled to the brim with old boxes and machinery into a high-tech bioimaging facility for Carnegie Mellon University created an opportunity out of disorder. High ceilings and large south-facing windows in this former industrial space frame an environment filled with light, warm colors and contrasting materials. The design team strategically placed the program elements to enhance these qualities and maximize workflow efficiency, creating an ideal space for this specialized work.
