YO! Home granted planning permission

September 23, 2016

GHA has secured planing for YO! Home, a development of 24 modular apartments in New Islington, Manchester. This unique living initiative is the first of its kind and efficiently re-imagines the contemporary home.

The concept has been conceived and developed by Simon Woodroffe, founder of YO! Company and the man responsible for YO! Sushi and YOTEL and designed by GHA. YO! Home addresses the need for urban apartments and introduces a new concept for compact high quality living for buyers who are seeking maximum value (and space) for their money.

A unique aspect to the project is its modular construction. The first phase of 24 apartments, built offsite by SIG, will be built in Manchester. The whole process reduces on-site costs, and eliminates factors such as weather affecting build times, and therefore cost.
