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.

Linking present-day innovations to a city's manufacturing heritage

About this project

Connecting past, present, and future is integral to the Bakery Square 2.0 development in Pittsburgh’s growing East Liberty neighborhood, a vision that is being planned and realized by Strada and partner Walnut Capital. Home to tech companies Google and AutoDesk, and adjacent to retail outlets, restaurants, and apartment complexes, Bakery Office Two expands on the redevelopment of a 100-year-old former Nabisco factory.

With Bakery Office Two, Pittsburgh’s industrial history is physically and aesthetically linked to its current role as a center for innovation. A key feature of this 200,000-SF commercial building is a three-level skybridge, joining the new building to Nabisco across the street. The new structure provides Google with room for growth, and builds on to the appeal of the district for other tech companies moving to the area. Integrated green infrastructure elements promote sustainable features in an urban setting, with rain gardens, a roof that collects rainwater, and a retention pond at ground level. Surrounding bike lanes are protected, and the interior lobby hosts a “living wall” of greenery, joining natural splendor and high-tech advancement together right before your eyes.
