Capsosomes, that is, polymer capsules containing liposomal subcompartments, represent a promising new concept towards the design of artificial cells. Herein, capsosomes with control over the position of the subunits, "free-floating" in the capsule interior and/or associated with the polymer membrane, are reported. The functionality of these capsosomes is demonstrated via temperature-triggered encapsulated catalysis using subtilisin.
