Strada is taking active measures to ensure the health of our Team Members and also to assist in fighting the spread of COVID-19.

Effective March 17, 2020, Strada is closing our physical offices in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and we will continue to operate remotely. We anticipate returning to our offices on April 30, 2020 but will update our plans as new information becomes available.

Meetings will be held virtually, via conference call or may be postponed. All of our Team Members will be working remotely under our work-from-home policy. Due to the two-week school and business closings our staff may be active at various times throughout the day and evening, so please bear with us as we make every effort to stay on schedule and in contact with our clients and business colleagues.

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.

Building for work and play

About the project

Occupying a dramatic penthouse space in a 100-year-old Nabisco bakery, the design of Google Pittsburgh’s new workplace resulted from Strada’s PlaceMapping process, which focused on understanding and identifying the unique culture and needs of the local Googlers (staff). While Google is a global technology giant, its workplaces are known for drawing on local flavor and establishing highly creative environments that attract and stimulate the most talented employees. The design team used the PlaceMapping process to fuse human experience, corporate program and the physical qualities of the former bakery into compelling a design for Google.

The designers employed a variety of data gathering tools, from interviews to time-lapse photography, to place the users and their culture at the forefront of the design process. The resulting data was synthesized into a Design Album that outlined the guiding principles for the project. Essential goals included creating unique “wow” factors, encouraging a close-knit family environment, allowing for access to fresh air and natural light, and incorporating diverse and stimulating spaces to foster experimental work. The resulting office is a multi-level collage of interesting places that reflect the clever and fun Google culture while providing a highly functional environment where Googlers can both work and relax.

Strada went on to design a second and third phase of Google’s Pittsburgh office, which now occupies over 140,000 SF in the building. The company’s continued expansion is fueling development of a new building under construction across Penn Avenue as part of Bakery Square 2.0.

“Pittsburgh’s most incredible workspace? No doubt about it.”
