Unique headquarter

Offices on the riverbank

A three-story office building is being constructed to fill the final vacant lot on Werkstattgasse on the banks of the River Lorze. Attractive, extremely well-lit office space is being created on an area totaling around 900 m2. The modern, high-ceilinged offices in this new building are characterized by the industrial charm of the surrounding buildings, some of which are deemed worthy of preservation. Brand-new settings for the success stories of tomorrow are being created here.

Facts & Figures

  • A total of 880 m2 of office/commercial space
  • Over three floors (ground – 2nd floor)
  • Spacious storage areas in the basement
  • Parking right by the entrance
  • Restaurants and shops within walking distance

Completion approx. October 2023 for tenant fit-out.


Single or multi-tenant

The building is primarily intended to be a single-tenant office building: the installation of a spiral staircase means that the floors can be connected internally per rental area if required. Each story is approx. 300 m2. Restroom facilities are installed on every floor and there are connections for kitchenettes. This means that the building can also be occupied by multiple tenants.

The rental space on the ground floor is directly linked to the Lorzensteg, which leads to the Papieri neighborhood and acts as a north-south connection to Teuflibachpark to the north and the center of Cham.

Spacious storage areas are available in the basement. Vehicle and cycle parking is located right by the entrance.

  • Röösli Architects, Zug

The new-build that is replacing the former central warehouse has the same footprint and height as the already demolished building. Intended to be a long three-story block, it is closely aligned with the newly built promenade along the River Lorze and attached to the existing workshop building. The southern stairwell of the workshop building provides access to the new building.



On the Papieri development, you’ll be living on a site with its own energy network. The district heating and cooling system ensures a self-sufficient supply of heating and cooling to all buildings – and it’s completely carbon neutral. Did you know, for example, that the underfloor heating regulates the temperature of the rooms in summer and therefore helps to cool? Around 40% of the electricity that the site requires is produced right there, with solar panels and its very own river hydro power plant. It does not emit any energy-related greenhouse gases.

The Papieri site is the first 2,000-watt site in the Canton of Zug.
