Uraniastrasse 31, 8001 Zürich

The Historic

Our third workspace in Zurich is located in the Handelshof - a building with history and in close proximity to the city center.

In the second half of the 19th century, the town of Zurich grew steadily beyond its historic core. The construction of the main station and the development of Bahnhofstrasse created new districts outside the old town, which to this day constitute the cities' commercial hotspots. One of the landmarks of this expansion phase is the historic Handelshof, in a location which today can be considered extremely privileged.

« Benchling has grown significantly in EMEA over the last 12 months. Our new offices at Headsquarter in the centre of Zurich provides the perfect modern and flexible workspace for our growing team to meet, collaborate, and enhance cross-functional work and creativity. We are excited to be part of this community. »
