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.

About this project

Strada has led the transformation of the West Virginia University Health Sciences Center Cafe from a dull institutional cafeteria into an exciting destination in which students and faculty can socialize, work independently, and find refreshment throughout their busy days. The Cafe is now a bustling hub for dining and collaboration that encompases indoor and outdoor spaces, including multiple rooms, study nooks, open and individual seating areas, and unexpected views of the campus outside. Skylights in the ceiling previously covered over by acoustical ceiling tiles now once again shed light on the interior’s formerly dim spaces, making this an ideal place for intellectual exploration. Students and faculty can freely transition to work or class with easy access points that connect to the rest of the building and campus. This campus place has become a dynamic dining forum, fostering interdisciplinary discourse within a layered arrangement of light and form.
