We have established offices in 3 locations; however, if we can’t always meet face-to-face then we use online mediums such as Microsoft Teams, Messenger or Zoom to discuss your project no matter your location, time zone or the countries ‘latest Covid settings’.


The Ashburton Studio is owned by the founding directors and is testament to Studio 4 Architects commitment to continue to serve the community in which it was established. 

In 2016 Chilton & Mayne undertook renovations to the original building to bring it up to current building standards. This provided an opportunity to update and refresh the building since its construction in the early 1950’s. 

An elegant alteration to the front of the building with new cedar clad façade was implemented to establish proportion, symmetry and a defined entry into the studio. Internally feature walls and partitions have been adorned with dark stained timber providing reference to the front façade ensuring the internal spaces are in concert with the external form. 

The studio has two generous meeting rooms, reception, waiting area and a collaborative workspace to assist the creation of your project.


To support the post-quake rebuild and business repopulation effort in Christchurch, Studio 4 Architects have made a conscious choice to establish an office within the CBD. Equally we have also made a deliberate choice to take occupancy within a seismically strengthened and repurposed building as means to support a sustainable approach to not only our business but also to offset the impact that new buildings have on the environment.

We have created a culture where people want to come to work and participate in the activities of the studio. We welcome the opportunity as well as encourage our clients to freely participate in our space and look forward to pinning your project up on the walls to discuss the opportunities for your design.

We are centrally located on the ground floor of 124 Peterborough Street with ease of access for both public and private forms of transport.


We have a collaboration space located in Frankton where we can service our Lakes District and Central Otago clients. The space is visited frequently by the Directors of Studio 4 Architects and is available for appointments at the client’s request.
