Robert, whose family owns Koyman Galleries, equates his own design evolution to changes within the business. “ Taking the time to discover the growth of the Ottawa buying public encouraged the idea of creating a new image for Koyman Galleries,” says Robert. “ This was inspired in part from the design and renovations of my own condo. I fell in love with the clean, open loft-like concept and noticed just how much the art stood out in this type of environment.”
The connoisseur also notes that the art-buying public in Ottawa has become more sophisticated and states that, “their tastes have changed, consistent with what was happening in other large cities such as Toronto.” The clean, loft-like feel to their new gallery space is much more conducive to the more savvy Ottawa buyer and a contemporary collection.
