Spectacular Wiroa Station Wine Cellar by MAP Architects

Pursuitist Luxury Best Luxury Blog

Wiroa Station Wine Cellar was designed by MAP Architects and is located in the Bay of Islands of New Zealand. The project consisted of a modern concrete building that acts as a viewing platform and has the ability to shelter hundreds of precious wines.

Even though its architecture may inspire a completely independent dwelling, Wiroa Station Wine Cellar is actually an addition to a small beach-side home and offers a great place of retreat for the inhabitants.

Here is more information from the architects, as seen on Contemporist: “Restricted to 25 square meters due to local planning regulations, and set into the hillside to reduce the presence on the skyline, this simple building forms a calm backdrop to the scenery, intended to enhance the enjoyment of the environment, and wine tasting. Utilizing the local vernacular of wartime coastal bunkers, the concrete wine cellar opens into a broad wedge to allow a stunning elevated vista of the Bay of Islands“. [Photography by Brian Cully]
