ArchiPro and Audi e-tron in Christchurch
When a shared passion for design, innovation, and sustainability is demonstrated it is hard not to be involved. We recently jumped at opportunity to show our support for Audi New Zealand’s continued relationship with industry-leading online architecture, design and construction platform – ArchiPro. As Audi representatives in the Canterbury region, witnessing Christchurch’s ongoing exhibition of fresh architectural brilliance has been engrained into our everyday lives since the 2010 earthquakes.
The cohesion between premium automotive products and stunning architecture is often captured in our industry and recently we’ve had the opportunity to demonstrate this common practice with our sustainable and innovative Audi e-tron product and a very polished example of modern architecture, Modern Residence, designed by the highly-awarded Christchurch based Johnston Architects.
View our in-house photos from a recent ArchiPro photoshoot where Modern Residence meets Audi e-tron. Read more about Audi New Zealand and ArchiPro’s partnership take-outs from the press release below.
We’ve let the architect speak volume of this beautiful home and copied the below from Johnston Architects’ website.
“Located within the leafy suburbs of Christchurch, this four-bedroom home presents a solid yet elegant façade to the public realm, in contrast to the double height openness of the private and sunny backyard beyond.
A strong external materials palette of board marked concrete, crisp steel detailing and large expanses of double-glazing complement the artisanal handmade brick cladding to create the beautifully proportioned rectangular volumes of the home.
Warm timber finishes define both the ceiling and floor planes of the open plan interior living spaces and continue uninterrupted through to the external verandah to the north of the home blending the transition between indoors and out.”

Whether parking, in the city or on long journeys, the Audi e-tron makes life easier for its driver in many situations. Its two electric motors together with electric all-wheel drive provide for awesome performance and agile handling.

Auckland – May 2021
Audi New Zealand and ArchiPro have announced a partnership that will focus on design, innovation and sustainability; values that are intrinsic to both companies. The online, “all-in-one“ platform helps Kiwis find outstanding products and professionals for their building and design projects.
This is the first time ArchiPro has partnered with a business outside of the architecture and construction industries. ArchiPro works alongside clients and homeowners who embody and value innovation, sustainability and high performance, and the Audi brand and product portfolio exactly reflects these values.
Audi’s vehicles are design-led and innovative, and the e-tron range speaks to the brand’s commitment to sustainability, which sits well with the values of ArchiPro’s clients and customers.
Audi New Zealand General Manager, Dean Sheed, believes the alignment is seamless.
