Daniel Faria and Rui Amaral are the dynamic duo behind one of west-end Toronto's newest and most ambitious art galleries. Representing artists from Douglas Coupland to Derek Liddington, Daniel required a highly functional multi-purpose space: the converted mechanic’s shop needed to accommodate paintings, installations, and performances. Careful attention was paid to the proportion and scale of the walls as well as the lighting. The entry wall is mounted on castors, maximizing flexibility in the main exhibition hall, and the former auto paint spray booth was transformed into a back-of-house storage and viewing room.
