As more home buyers are looking for smaller homes that do more with less square footage, Joel Turkel and his team have focused a lot of effort on making the homes more dense while including a lot of functionality. To achieve homes with reduced square footage, volume and surface area, Turkel worked to minimize circulation areas and make rooms multi-functional and transformative for those few occasions a year when you need space to entertain. Studies and offices do double duty as guest rooms, lofts that serve as extra living rooms transform into sleeping spaces, and living and dining areas can accommodate for entertaining.

There are three ways to go about working with Turkel Design and Lindal Cedar Homes to get a modern and green home. First, you can choose a pre-designed home straight from their catalog; second, you could work with Turkel Design to modify one of the pre-designed homes to fit your site and needs; or third you can get a completely customized design from Turkel Design with the same look and feel as the Dwell Homes Collection, but that completely meets all your needs. After the design is finalized, the plans are sent to Lindal Cedar Homes who prepares the materials for your house and ships them off to the location.

    I love these modern silhouettes so much! Oh house of my dreams, I have found you!

    I must admit I have found Lindal’s designs long in the tooth. In Colorado they are a dime a dozen but this looks great.

    these are beautiful. also like the effort on the part of the co to make the homes “more dense while including a lot of functionality”. there’s no reason for anyone, especially a modernist, to be living in anything gargantuan.
