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.

New polish and style for an Art Deco skyscraper

About this project

The Kimpton Cardinal Hotel’s transformation of the historic R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company headquarters is a landmark of the Winston Salem skyline that is not to be missed. Originally designed by Shreve & Lamb, this elegant structure is the inspiration behind the Empire State Building. Today the preserved building remains the embodiment of classic Art Deco architecture, and its most beautiful features are now open to the public as part of this one-of-a-kind hotel.

Occupying the first six floors, the boutique hotel features 200 rooms with historic design elements and modern comforts. As Architect of Record on this project, Strada collaborated with an expert design team including Gensler, Teresa Fatino Design, Crème Design, and Ohm Lighting to ensure that the structure’s inherent wit and charm would be preserved while complementary elements were added. The property also boasts world class amenities, such as a dashing restaurant, the Katharine, patio dining, a fitness center, and a rooftop deck with exquisite views of Downtown and the Innovation Quarter. The repurposing and preservation of this iconic building is indicative of a new wave of activity in Winston Salem, and points the way to a storied future.
