The Enterprise Center, part of the University of East Anglia in Norwich, was built in 2015 as a space for business support workshops, networking activities, and open plan offices. Dubbed the UK’s greenest building, Architype’s award-winning design went on to become the first international building to offer Passivhaus performance alongside renewable materials.
Sourced from local suppliers, the renewable building materials have been left deliberately exposed, allowing users to engage directly with them while promoting a circular economy. Plus, as the center is set adjacent to the historic gardens of Earlham Hall, it complements the surrounding landscape — a wealth of green space that supports the well-being of users.
Alongside its Passivhaus status, it also achieved the BREEAM Oustanding rating, and is recognised internationally as a world-class facility.
