AN £18m flats complex in Huddersfield will be light years away from the building's origins as a textile mill.
More than 100 apartments will be created at Wellington Mills, Plover Road, Oakes.
And they will be the latest in work/living space, developers are promising.
Flats in the Equilibrium complex will have moveable walls and include high-tech features.
A new technology called Intelligent Home Control will allow residents to remotely control lighting, audio-visual equipment and windows.
Richard Brown, Lanson's sales and marketing manager, said: "We've taken every step to ensure residents can achieve the life balance they deserve.
"Our research discovered that working from home, flexible living, community spirit and the environment are becoming increasingly important. This has been reflected in Equilibrium's design."
Prices for the 123 one- and two-bedroom apartments start at £84,950.
The developers say inspiration was taken from as far afield as Nicaragua, Canada, Finland and the USA.
Residents will have access to a concierge and business services including typing and faxing.
The development will be built over two years and include landscaped communal gardens, sculptures and outdoor seating.
High-tech features will include intelligent lighting controls, ceiling speakers for multi-room audio and water leakage sensors.
Mr Brown said: "We've tried to think of everything possible to allow residents to maximise the time they spend at home."
Equilibrium will be built with thermally efficient timber panels that are non-toxic, renewable and biodegradable.
Energy savings of up to 70% are expected.
A show apartment is scheduled to open at the end of the month.
