Architecturally Acclaimed Venue

The Glasshouses is comprised of two levels in the Chelsea Arts Tower, which is an architecturally acclaimed building in one of Manhattan’s most desirable, trendy neighborhoods. Both the 14th and 21st floors feature dramatic high ceilings, spacious layouts, and Terrazzo floors to create an ideal background for any photo shoot.

Amazing Views and Lighting

You will have no trouble creating just the right lighting scheme and setting up shots that showcase the incredible scenery of Manhattan with The Glasshouses. Our facilities let natural light spill in through massive windows, or you can choose to customize lighting with our sophisticated built-in features ready for theatrical event lighting.

  • Built-in lighting – Our built-in lighting is fit for a wide range of events, so we can help you create the ideal ambiance for any type of shoot. With a sophisticated sound system in place, you can also have a great soundtrack to further set the mood.
  • Floor-to-ceiling windows – When you want to capture shots with an absolutely amazing background, you can take advantage of floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Hudson River, downtown Manhattan, and the upper-west side.
  • Motorized shades – If the natural light from our windows is not what you need for your shoot, we have motorized shades equipped to easily adjust the lighting.

Fully Customizable Space

With a spacious layout in each of our floors, you will have plenty of room for all of your equipment. Plus, you can enjoy a blank slate design in the space with neutral toned floors and walls, which will allow you to customize the set of your shoot to achieve any look. With Glasshouse 21, you can also work on a small balcony that overlooks downtown Manhattan for amazing outdoor photos.
