R. Grey Gallery Boise, Idaho

The R Grey Gallery is the first commercial tenant in the R Grey Lofts development, completed by McKibben + Cooper in September 2007. The Gallery moved from their existing space in Boise to the new space, more than doubling their size.

The focus of the main retail space is a backlit stair going from the front, sidewalk level of the space to the upper, dock-level portion of the space, a remnant of the existing building's rail era warehouse operation from the early 20th century.

Several floating clouds focus customers' attention on the jewelry displays, and the Gallery includes a state-of-the-art shop for the creation of the custom pieces that are the Gallery's specialty. Exposed structure and systems above the clouds is "painted out", and existing masonry walls have been cleaned and left exposed.
