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.

Invigorating new space for developing food diagnostics

About the project

Invisible Sentinel is a life-sciences company that develops rapid diagnostics for the food and beverage industries. As a recent graduate of the Science Center’s incubator program, the company was in need of a new facility for its growing operations. Process workflow was the primary driver of the layout to ensure maximum efficiency and quality assurance. The prominent use of glass allows daylight to penetrate the interior spaces and provides visibility into and out of the labs and workspaces. Writeable and pinnable surfaces foster collaboration. Sustainable features include the use of high performance fume hoods, LED lighting, biobased polymer resilient flooring, and zero VOC materials.
