Skylight Modern

Launched for Fashion Week in February 2013, Skylight Modern is the newest space in the Skylight collection.

A work of wonder from James Ramsey, principal architect of RAAD and co-founder of the Lowline, Skylight Modern harkens a museum-esque vibe with simple but impactful architecture lending itself to the designer’s eye. Catered events at Skylight Modern can be customized to each client’s vision.

Skylight Modern offers 15,000 square feet of high-ceilinged space that is virtually column-free, and touches of exposed concrete add an edge to the clean architecture.

The venue offers a storefront entrance in the Chelsea Gallery district that can be utilized for branding or transformed into a discrete humbled entrance.
