About the Firm
Strada is the Italian word for street. Streets matter to us. They shape connections between buildings, people, and public spaces. They are the fundamental infrastructure of our communities and the core of our civic lives. At Strada, we create physical connections that forge social connections. We believe in creating spaces and places where people want to be. Founded and led by a team of seasoned professionals, we are a cross-disciplinary design firm where architects, graphic designers, and interior designers regularly collaborate with urban designers and landscape architects to create places that people enjoy. More than a group of designers, the firm's 40+ professionals are trusted advisors. Our individual experiences are deep and wide-ranging. Combined, we have broad resources and talents that give us the flexibility to design any type of building and resolve complex challenges. The firm's principals are hands-on practitioners who relish the process of design and the opportunity to form new relationships, remaining actively involved in projects from beginning to end. They lead interdisciplinary teams through an interactive design process that emphasizes listening thoroughly and communicating clearly. Inherent in our approach are sustainable practices that save resources and ensure a healthy future for our cities and communities. UJMN Architects + Designers merged with Strada in June 2013. Established in Philadelphia in 1967, UJMN was recognized for its award-winning expertise in architecture, sustainable design, and museum and exhibit design. The merger of UJMN and Strada forges a dynamic design firm with expanded resources and visionary leadership to assist a wide array of clients, from universities and cultural institutions to commercial developers, and everything in between. Our comprehensive firm operates offices in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, serving clients nationwide.
