CityHome, a design project from MIT Media Lab, allows a flat with a very small footprint (840 square feet) to function as if it is around two or three times that size. Its ‘transformable wall system’, which integrates furniture, storage, exercise equipment, lighting, office equipment, and entertainment systems, was devised to contribute to a reduction in urban sprawl.
