Apartment Squeezes Multiple Rooms Into One With Pull-Down Furniture
Yo! Home uses a system of theater-like counterweights to turn a single space into several different rooms.
Yo! Sushi and Yotel founder Simon Woodroffe first unveiled his plans for Yo! Home, an apartment concept for “adjustable rooms” and theater-inspired walls, at the London Design Festival in 2012.
The design of the Yo! Home apartment uses a system of counterweights usually used in theater stages to turn a single space into different types of rooms. The apartment contains 12 moving parts that help transform the space. Walls can shift and adjust to reveal or create storage spaces, and a false floor can rise to reveal living space underneath and a sleeping area on top of it.
