..My four-in-one flats will re-invent the way we live, says ex-Dragons' Den starBy Simon Garner | – 6 hours ago..
former star of BBC hit TV show Dragons' Den wants to revolutionise the property market by building luxury homes boasting several 'rooms' inside a tiny studio flat space.
Simon Woodroffe has created a home which offers four times the rooms within the confines of a typical one-bedroom flat.
His YO! Home prototype works by hiding rooms which then appear at the touch of a button or the pull of a wall - with an amazing bedroom lowered down from the ceiling.

These ‘hidden rooms’, which are operated via 12 mechanical moving parts, are designed to create four 80 sq/m rooms in one single 80 sq/m apartment.
... "Twelve moving parts draw on a wealth of engineering technology taken from fields as diverse as yacht and automotive design and the mechanics of stage production, allowing the transformation of an 80 sq/m space into a much bigger home.
"The technologies we have used are already established in car design, super-yachts and theatre, their application in the home is long overdue."
Woodroffe, who used to work as a rock show stage designer, took inspiration from the way experts manage stage mechanics on West End musical shows.
He has also been heavily influenced by the principles of Japanese living, where the simple and adaptable layout of traditional rooms allows many activities to take place in the same space.
