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.

New sparkle for a prominent South Hills hotel

Strada’s renovation of the Crowne Plaza Hotel, a 179-room property located in the hilly suburbs south of Pittsburgh, emphasizes comfort and community with open social spaces and textures inspired by the natural world. The hotel’s interiors, including its ballroom, guest rooms, restaurant and meeting areas, have all been transformed to create a guest experience that encompasses work and pleasure. Visitors are immediately welcomed by bright and warm surfaces as they enter the hotel. The new lobby radiates a clean, mid-century vibe, and includes a large communal table where guests are invited to plug in or catch up on news while enjoying a drink. In contrast, the adjacent restaurant has been remade in darker tones, with a warm and intimate mood that is complemented by an updated menu with craft beers and specialty cocktails. Design details throughout, such as floor coverings, wall treatments, and tabletops conjure familiar flora and fauna with leaf patterns and branches. The new features are not limited to indoor comforts, but also include an outdoor terrace and firepit, allowing guests to socialize and unwind at any hour.
