ABOUT


WHERE LIVING IS INVIGORATED AND THE DAY-TO-DAY IS REIMAGINED

The name Zoia stems from the word Zoi, which means “life” in Greek. Creating living experiences across the globe has been our passion over the last decades. By leveraging our expertise and focusing our efforts on the formation of living experiences rather than simply investing in “4 walls”, we are able to bring change and add value into those markets in which we operate.
