BRING­ING WORK HOME

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.
