ZEN HEADQUARTERS ONE
This prestigious landmark building for an expanding company provides 850 m2 of office accommodation within a two storey steel framed construction. The building is located directly adjacent to Rochdale Canal, optimising views along the water and to the hills beyond. The linear form of the building has been designed to allow for possible future expansion. Sustainable passive energy strategies provide
the good working environment: stack effect; high thermal mass; solar shading; manually opening windows. The building received the Rochdale Civic Society Design Award, as well as the RIBA Regional Award for Commercial Architecture. The building is also featured in the book ‘Lancashire: Manchester and The South-East’ from Pevsner’s renowned ‘The Buildings of England’ series.
