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 story’s form should be organic— the moves it makes, the shape it takes. Initial visions of setting, theme, voice, and plot emerge as the writer intuits what the story needs without the anchor of minutia holding things back. Art is made.

About the project

This historic renovation project involved one of the oldest collegiate Gothic Revival buildings at the University of Pennsylvania. Originally built in 1907, the White Training House sits adjacent to Franklin Field and houses offices, dining and meeting rooms for many of the University’s sports teams, coaches, and staff. The renovation included exterior brick masonry and terra cotta trim, copper roofing, and structural systems improvements.

Located within the J. William White Training House, the Dunning Coaching Center provides strategic support for Penn’s various sports and athletic programs, welcoming students, alumni, and visitors to its modern conference/reception center, and providing a technologically-advanced working environment for the University’s coaches and support staff. The high-tech coaching complex and multi-purpose conference and recruiting center features video viewing capabilities, a trophy and exhibition room, dining hall, and lounges.
