The new Supreme Court Building was opened in January 2010 by Prince William. It is New Zealand's final court of appeal. It recognises New Zealand as an independent nation with its own history and traditions.
The Supreme Court comprises a new building and the Old High Court Building which underwent massive earthquake strengthening and restoration. The Court Room is in the new section and is an unusual ovoid shape. It's exterior is copper panelled and the interior lined with panels of silver beach. It is very unusual. Tours can be arranged and it is possible to walk in off the street and look at the court room as long as it's not in use.
I note that the photo coming up when I write my review is not of the Supreme Court, but in fact Wellingtons Parliament buildings - the Beehive and Parliament House. I will endeavour to take and post some photos.
