"The building's plan frames views of nearby hills.  An expansive use of glass, overhangs, and arcades creates a strong relationship between indoors and out.  The warm material palette contrasts with the more industrial structures elsewhere on the site.  It's a handsome building and a very inviting place to work."

Graham Baba's 'magic touch'

"Both tenants and customers are attracted by the funky charm of these spaces, as well as the shops, bars and restaurants that fill them.  Jim Graham said the projects work because the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. They also provide an antidote to the vanilla spaces big chain outlets tend to occupy.  There are buildings, such as Melrose Market, that have a charm “that we don't want to bulldoze over,” he said. “Those buildings just need a little bit of care and thought to become something special, and Graham Baba has shown an ability to do so.”
