Exciting news has broken this week for the Manchester property market. Simon Woodroffe, founder of the YO! Company behind popular sushi chain, YO! Sushi, has announced plans to launch a 24 apartment block of space-saving luxury flats in Manchester, in the up-and-coming New Islington area.
These innovative new apartments are designed with urban-living in mind, and are likely to prove a real hit with young professionals looking for an affordable purchase that meets all their needs. And if one of these needs is futuristic, space-saving home that’s bound to impress, then a YO! Home is sure to do that!
Working in collaboration with Glenn Howells Architects and SIG Building Systems, the YO! Homes being created in New Islington feature some seriously innovative ideas.
Within a space no larger than a one-bedroom flat, a YO! Home squeezes in enough features to fill a two-bedroom house. Sounds impossible, right?
Well, not when you learn how they do it!
According to documents submitted with the planning application, “The design centres upon a kit of moving parts, which draw on the mechanics of stage scenery, transforming a small space into a much larger home. The use of multipurpose furniture, cleverly crafted moving elements and a carefully considered design of space helps create a flexible home that transforms the way we live.”
