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

They say location is everything. Tucked within historic Rittenhouse Row in the heart of Center City Philadelphia is a former print shop that sat empty for years. That is until DanDan came along. Now the bustle of urban life outside matches the energy inside. The stunning 2,200-SF restaurant features a glass façade that frames an intimate two-story dining experience. Inserting a new mezzanine into the cavernous first floor created an additional dining area that overlooks a dramatic double-height bar.

Subtle nods to Taiwanese culture are evident in the oversized wall graphic of DanDan noodles and the luminescent shell-paned globes that float overhead. Natural woods, concrete countertops, subway tile, and LED fixtures create a contemporary, edgy yet elegant atmosphere. Whether you have a lunch meeting or simply want to unwind at the end of a long workday and have some fun, DanDan is the place to be.
