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.

About this project

Once a difficult space to navigate and in need of an upgrade, the new 42,000 SF Convene Commerce Square has expanded and transformed the high-end coworking facility into Philadelphia’s largest and most premium meeting venue. Purposefully-designed for collaboration and productivity, the facility contains a variety of private small, medium, and large rooms, auditoriums, conference spaces and break-out areas for corporate and university tenants.

Inspired by the 1920’s historic Art Deco Maustbaum theater that once occupied the site, organizing principles from the theater helped arrange the space into color-coordinated zones. Dark, neutral corridors with dramatic lighting and views of framed scenes now guide you to grand common areas adorned with elegant finishes, furniture, and lighting. The common areas for each zone serve as a pre-function space, setting the stage before entering one of the adjacent auditorium or meeting spaces. Colorful painted murals, designed by a local artist, ground the space in the local art and culture of Philadelphia.
