Designed with architects in mind, the Modular Skylights system lets you spend more time designing solutions and less time specifying. Modular Skylights can be combined in a number of rooflight configurations, creating perfect solutions for a wide variety of building types: narrow corridors, internal courts, studios, large circulation spaces and much more. Each roof glazing solution is delivered with a special prefabricated flashing ensuring a perfect fit and 100% water tightness. Modular Skylights is the result of several years of research and design by VELUX and Foster + Partners. The combination of technology, innovation, imagination and expertise has created a flexible and beautiful skylight system that transforms any space into something special.
