Over the weekend i did an Architectural photography shoot for Zola Windows of a beautiful home in SW Rochester, Minnesota. The home is owned by a couple from Pakistan who are both doctors at Mayo Clinic and is located only a mile from my house, so it was very convenient! I spent a couple of hours shooting exteriors at dusk on Friday night and then went back very early on Saturday do shoot daytime exteriors, as well as interiors. The morning started out very foggy, which wasn’t great for exterior photography and it took a while for the sun to burn the condensation off the freshly cleaned windows. Ugh! But in the end I was very happy with the images I captured and have posted a few of the highlights here. The home was built by Mike Allen Home Builders and the architect was CRW.

Zola Windows is based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and ships custom-crafted passive house windows and doors to clients throughout the U.S. and Canada. Zola Windows are manufactured in Europe and are shipped directly to your building site.

“In 2011 husband and wife team Florian Speier and Jessica Pfohl left their careers in architecture and law to combine their unique skillsets and envisioned a new type of window company together. They were fortunate to join forces with sustainable construction expert, Evan Anderson, and Joyce Pfohl, whose careful attention to detail ensured customer satisfaction. The mission of the company was to provide windows that were truly high-performance and supportive of cutting-edge architecture. From these early beginnings, Zola developed a streamlined, direct sales and support system powered by a knowledgeable team that was truly passionate about windows.

We specialize in custom-made windows and doors for high-performance and luxury homes. Our windows and doors are custom-crafted in Europe and shipped directly to you. As fenestration partners, we share our knowledge, expertise, and innovative solutions to make your lofty visions a reality.”
