Viva gives the old New Zealand Herald office a stylish send-off

There was nothing particularly fashionable about the New Zealand Herald’s old office in Albert St—until now. 

The faux marble bathrooms, cubicle desks and grim Eastern Bloc-style surrounds made the perfect backdrop for a Viva shoot featuring some of the latest New Zealand fashions.

The shoot by Guy Coombes celebrates the Herald’s departure from its home of the last 152 years, a record length for any business in the CBD.

Next year, the building will be demolished and property owner Mansons TCLM will begin works on a $675 million, 30 level office block, 125 room hotel and shops.
