  1. Daryl Cockburn Says:

    The Old Wool House 1958? Bernard Johns & Whitwell with Bill Toomath has lovely proportions when seen in perfect elevation from upper storeys in a bldg across Featherston St
    But the most visible and influential to us at the time was Massey House with its lifts facing the street and high stud enough for a mezz cafe above a bookshop
