Interior Design Belvedere Tiburon. Timeless Apartments, is about the two Condominiums where we did Interior Design and Remodeling services. Both Interiors were done Turn-key.
Turnkey means we designed and built and the owners just took the keys and moved in, they did participate as their jobs allowed. Both Water view apartments with many things in common and both with differences too.
The Condominiums will be called “Hill” and “Waterfront”. They are in the downtown area of Tiburon, central and well located. Excellent Real Estate.
For me one of the best attribute Design can get is “Timeless”. The Hill unit we designed is 28 years old and remaining just as in the photography taken shortly after completion, and has been called Timeless by Style editors.
The Turnkey service or procedure is a method of designing and building and helping the client or owner with everything you can and that they are not personally required to do. In he Hill Apartment the owners lived in Austria, this was a second home having business in the San Francisco Bay Area, so it was obviously the way to go with the “Fax” then; In the Waterfront apartment they both worked and wished to relegate, promissed more involvement but ended relagating to us.
To begin with the two homes are View Homes, that is the Fan Francisco Bay Water view and each view slightly different one. The view from the Hill. The view from the waterfront. So they are different views, but Water views.
However this is important in that some of the resources are the same. View and light, inspiration. It means a lot.
Both are under 1000 sq. Ft. Hill is a pied a Terre or a second I bedroom home, while Waterfront was designed for a principal residence foer a couple in their 50’s.
Both are one bedroom units. Hill is wider allowing for view from both living and bedroom. Waterfront is narrow, with the bedroom at the back. Closer to the water frontage become more scarce.
Here are the two Layouts. Please note the Plans appear at different scales.

Actually both 1 bedroom Condos only have a Bathroom each, so this bathroom design most satisfy both the daily use of the occupents as well as a presentation powder room, where a visitor under privacy condition reflects on the design or look of the unit.
While the Hill Condo done over 25 year ago had a storage opportunity and a bath-shower combination both allowed by the layout, the Waterfront Condo did not allow for storage and required accessibility to both shower and sink so the space below the sink is clear and there is no bath tub.
The older Hill unit had an enclosed kitchen about 8’x8′, we did some magic around it to encroach adjacent areas while opening it and adding the sit in Peninsula, which was more than they needed, plenty of restaurants for a traveling couple.
The Waterfront condo Kitchen, was already open. We literally decorated it, added a drawer under the single drawer dishwasher, painted everyhting replaced the lighting and that was it.
The Hill and Waterfront One bedroom Condos had similar bedrooms. On each we were able to increase storage space considerably however in different ways. At the Older Hill unit we added a Marble top fixed credennza with Pop up TV, make up end table and many drawers. The waterfront condo did not allow however we opted the closet space and extended it as we could.
