Inside flat from Black Mirror style building where 20,000 people live

Inside flat from Black Mirror style building where 20,000 people live

The huge apartment complex has everything you'd need right on your doorstep but it's left some people feeling uneasy

Photographs show inside the apartments part of the huge complex in China that’s been compared to Black Mirror.

In case you missed it, a video showing off a massive - and somewhat eerie-looking - apartment complex went viral recently.

You can see it for yourself here:

The Regent International is located in Qianjiang Century City in Hangzhou’s central business district.

It was designed by Alicia Loo (also the chief designer of the world’s second seven-star hotel, the Singapore Sands Hotel) and was initially intended to be a six-star hotel.

However, it's now home to 20,000 people - with some of them not experiencing any other kind of set-up.

Around 20,000 people call the apartment complex home.

And, while residents are - of course - free to leave whenever they fancy, the complex has been designed to offer those living in it everything they need right on their doorstep.

Alongside the living spaces, there’s the sort of amenities you’d find on any local high street such as supermarkets, barbers, swimming pools, cafes and even nail salons.

The complex has been likened to something you’d see in an episode of the dystopian Netflix series Black Mirror.

The apartments are popular with younger folks, such as students and graduates.

But, the inside of them is actually pretty run-of-the-mill. I know, I was a bit disappointed, too.

Although fairly basic, the flats, much like the complex itself, have just about everything you could need for comfortable living.

An estate agent’s listing for apartments, shows a compact kitchen with fitted units and worktops; three decent-sized bedrooms, with room for double beds; two bathrooms - one with a bathtub and one with a fitted shower; and a multifunctional living space.

The interior is decorated in a fairly neutral style with laminate flooring in the bedrooms and marble tiles elsewhere.

The apartment also comes complete with furniture including, washing machine, dining table, sofa and microwave - meaning renters can move straight in.

It’s also got a couple of bathrooms.

In case you’re wondering what sort of people choose to live there - it’s reported that they’re particularly popular with students, graduates and young professionals. I must admit they’re a lot nicer than anywhere I lived during my time at uni.

And if you're curious about how much it costs to live there, small apartments without windows usually go for around 1,500 RMB per month (£167.58), according to local news outlets.

Yep, you read that price right.

Meanwhile, some of the larger properties with balconies are on the market for 4,000 RMB per month (£446.88).
