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.

Casual coffee oasis within a library

About the project

The Cup and Chaucer reading room, which derives its name from a Chaucer Manuscript owned by the Library, was carved out of an alcove of the Hillman Library. In service for many years, the coffee shop inside the main library of the University needed a new look and feel to accommodate new programming and meet demand for more cafe-style places to meet and study. The new design creates a variety of seating opportunities, an expanded beverage and snack menu, and makes space for coffeehouse-style entertainment. The display case for the manuscript serves as a performance backdrop for solo musicians and poetry readings.
