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.

The Craft of Story Building

A refined and welcoming place for study

About the project

The renovation of this 1970s-era library commemorates a major benefactor of the Law School, the Barco family. Strada worked intimately with all the stakeholders: the Law School Dean, the major donor and the facilities department to transform a dreary and dated space into a comfortable and welcoming meeting and research center for the law school community. The entrance lobby has been re-shaped with rich wood panels, and the circulation desk is now positioned as a hub for the main space. The inclusion of new study rooms, work tables, soft seating areas, and a cyber bar have created a refreshing new place for the law school community to socialize, study, and collaborate.

The new Barco Library provides a welcome study retreat encompassing a wide range of learning environments.
