Spotted on Core, this 1800 square foot two bedroom, two bath, apartment located in Chelsea, New York City, USA, features “surreal, retro industrial, and steampunk elements.
Upon entering this semi-private building, you are greeted with a submarine style front entry, complete with keypad locking system and working porthole.
The chef’s kitchen is furnished with high-end appliances and stainless steel countertops that allow for easy entertaining.
From the custom finished concrete floors to the 32-foot zeppelin LED programmable light system, this apartment is a truly unique living space.”
Fans of Jules Vernes, you will love this incredible apartment!

That’s got to be targeted toward a rich geek. It seems that the bathroom is very unassimilated with the rest of the design and breaks the immersion. A cool idea and it appears well executed. I would hope for moving objects and steam sounds. Steampunk is not my thing, though, and I would prefer a different theme.
Surreal is an understatement. I wonder how big the steampunk market is. I know its pretty good size in Portland Oregon but even this theme would really have to be marketing aggressively to find a buyer.
