THE WINE STA­TION

A heritage rail­way build­ing pro­vides The Wine Sta­tion with plenty of charm, and Ital­ian tech­nol­ogy pro­vides it with plenty of wine. The sta­tion of­fers 80 wines from 35 winer­ies by the glass, thanks to ma­chines that tem­per­a­ture-con­trol, pro­tect and pour. If that thought doesn’t warm your heart, the vin­tage fur­nish­ings, gourmet plat­ters and fire­side couches will.

PICTON LI­BRARY

Māori leg­end and nau­ti­cal his­tory find com­mon ground at Waitohi Whare Mā­tau­ranga. Ath­field Ar­chi­tects gave the new li­brary a “ves­sel” form, with curved walls and rak­ing col­umns, and it pays trib­ute to Te Ati­awa iwi’s rev­er­ence for the al­ba­tross with a line of wooden “feath­ers” be­neath the roofline.
