Yo! Company founder Simon Woodroffe is betting city dwellers will adapt to the new home concept

High density living is now the norm for many people wishing to live in the heart of modern cities, with small apartment sizes compensated with the surrounding lifestyle options of urban precincts. This is something the innovative and diversified Yo! Company founder Simon Woodroffe has foreseen. In 2012, the sushi magnate and hotelier unveiled a design for Yo! Home, a compact smart home that used technology and clever design to transform a singular room in various living spaces.

The Yo! Home is now due to be delivered to the public with a planning application submitted for the construction of 24 Yo! Home in New Islington, Manchester, United Kingdom.
