Founder of Yo!Sushi and Yotel created a prototype of a home with adjustable rooms and 'set-like' walls for the London Design Festival.

Ample urban housing space is a luxury of the past, and evidently, so is the static, nonadjustable room. Simon Woodroffe, founder of YO!Sushi and Yotel, created a prototype for the London Design Festival called the YO!Home, a 240 square foot apartment that includes two bedrooms, two living rooms, a cinema, an office, a kitchen and dining room, a bathroom and a wine cellar. Movable walls, much like those in a Japanese home, slide to partition off or open up the space.

Woodroffe explains:

Since the invention of the city centre apartment, we’ve never really re-invented it. YO! Home is that new invention. Twelve moving parts drawing on the mechanics of stage scenery allow the transformation of an eighty square metre space, the size of a one bedroom apartment, into a much bigger home.
