Zola Windows was founded by Swiss-trained architect and CPHC, Florian Speier. Unsatisfied with the selection of windows available to his architecture clients, Florian partnered with European manufacturers to design extremely energy efficient and airtight windows and doors for the U.S. market. Zola Windows is based in Colorado and ships custom, European-crafted windows and doors to clients throughout the U.S. and Canada. Zola prides itself on its expansive product lines- from the top-of-the-line, Thermo Clad Plus (aluminum-clad wood and perfect for Passive House), to affordable uPVC windows that are perfect for projects on a budget, Zola offers high performance, quality-crafted windows for every project.
