The twenty-first century modern designs of Turkel Design, produced by Lindal Cedar Homes, are the first to be selected for the Dwell Homes Collection. The modern appeal of these homes is in their fresh interpretation of Lindal’s Scandinavian roots. The warmth and livability of these homes come from clean, uncluttered lines and the inspired use of natural materials in the Lindal building system. We've created a quality that many thought impossible: "warm modern."
Turkel Design and Lindal Cedar Homes have prepared 7 designs for the Dwell Homes Collection. Each of the designs included here are available through the world-wide network of independent Lindal Cedar Homes dealers.
Turkel Design is available to work with clients to modify each plan to suit unique sites, budgets, and lifestyle requirements. Click on images to enlarge.
Designed for an active couple of any age, this compact design makes an ideal retirement, vacation, or first home. It is a home where grandchildren will thrill to visit and sleep in their own loft or where busy professionals can unwind together at the end of the day. Designed for entry-level living, the home features a loft-office and second en-suite guestroom upstairs. Opening at the rear toward a small yard or open expanse of shoreline, this small home is simply ideal for both town and country. 1710 sq. ft.
Just 24 feet wide, this compact three-bedroom family home was made for narrow infill lots where space is at a premium. The home features a large entry-level den that doubles as a playroom for little ones or an ample guest suite ready at a moment’s notice. All bedrooms are upstairs, connected by a dramatic gallery open to the light-filled great room below. At the end of the gallery: a generous master suite, complete with en suite bath, large walk-in closet and private outdoor terrace. 1890 sq. ft.
Striking a balance between volume and scale, this is the ideal weekend getaway or home for a growing family. Two en suite bedrooms offer total privacy for the owners and their weekend guests, or the parents of an energetic teen. Designed to take in broad views, the light-filled great room rises up to shelter a special loft, hovering above the oversized kitchen island below. Across from the island: a deep window seat opens onto the views—yet remains within ear-shot of the kettle—a perfect combination for lazy afternoons year-round. 2010 sq. ft.
Designed to nestle into established neighborhoods, this feature-laden family home is sensitively scaled to be a great neighbor. Upon entry, the house slowly unfolds, becoming more open and transparent as one moves away from the street. Perfect for a growing family, this home offers three bedrooms, a family room, and a ground floor guest suite—ideal for a grandparent’s extended stay. The two-story great room expands onto a sheltered outdoor terrace. Upstairs, the private master suite and the large studio feature their own private roof decks—the perfect escape from the daily grind. 2270 sq. ft.
The smaller sibling of the TD3 2990, this unique home is the perfect balance of rational organization and formal excitement—its soaring gull-wing roof seemingly ready for flight. The simply configured plan centers on a two-story great room, simultaneously uniting the house and providing needed separation between private spaces. The ideal home for growing families or those with grown children, it features entry-level living. Upstairs, two generous en suite bedrooms share a common loft, connecting along an airy gallery open to the great room below and the views beyond. 2340 sq. ft.
Nestled into the trees, the simple forms of this home seem one with nature. Designed to collect rainwater and exhaust the home’s warm air in the summer, the double-incline roof is defined by exposed beams of beautiful Douglas fir. Designed with a growing family in mind, this 3 bedroom, 3 bath home features en suite bedrooms on both floors. In the great room, an operable wall of glass opens the house onto a shaded deck. Above - the studio/workspace is the perfect tree-fort getaway. Open to the fireplace below and the trees beyond, it is an ideal go-away place to inspire and be inspired. 2490 sq. ft.
Featuring remarkably fresh lines and an impressive sensitivity of scale, this home is a pitch-perfect response to the bloated homes of today. Designed to reduce the volume-to-floor area ratio, the inclined butterfly roof shades, shelters, channels out unwanted hot air, collects its own rainwater and subtly harmonizes form and function. A refined and expressive family home, the TD3 2990 was featured in Time magazine’s April, 2009 issue of the Green Design 100, a compendium of the world’s best environmentally-conscious design. 2990 sq. ft.
