On the heels of the launch of the Dwell Homes real estate platform and the release of Dwell’s annual prefab issue—on newsstands now—Dwell today announced the Axiom Series, an inspiring collection of homes under the “Dwell Prefab” brand in collaboration with Turkel Design.
Since 2005, Joel Turkel and Turkel Design have been Dwell’s leading architectural partners in creating prefabricated homes that reflect the brand’s vision for modern design. In recognition of the partnership’s tenth year, Dwell and Turkel Design are pleased to announce this exclusive collaboration.
“Turkel Design has long been an architectural partner and supporter of Dwell,” says Dwell President and CEO Michela O’Connor Abrams. “Their team’s commitment to the highest design standards, energy efficiency, waste reduction, and building predictability aligns closely not only with modernist tenets but Dwell’s as well — it’s why Dwell champions prefab and why we’re delighted to partner with Turkel Design.”
Axiom Series prefab homes are the result of more than 20 years of academic research at MIT and professional practice in the industry, embodying the very best ideas and methods available.
“Dwell’s mission of making good design accessible to a broad audience is closely related to our own,” says Joel Turkel, co-founder of Turkel Design. “Prefab holds the promise to do this, and the Axiom Series homes represent the best possible use of prefab. We offer a suite of highly-refined products and services designed to make procuring a personalized, modern home easier and more efficient than ever.”
Axiom homes address specific lifestyle requirements, budgetary concerns, and site access/zoning restrictions with unprecedented flexibility. Throughout the process, each house design can be reviewed and modified via online meetings, then delivered worldwide.
“We are redefining the relationship between architect and homeowner,” says Turkel. “Prefabrication and our systematized delivery methods allow us to offer an unmatched level of predictability in material quality, attention to detail, and price control.”
Axiom homes also feature such environmentally conscious strategies as high levels of insulation and air tightness, reduced surface area and volume, passive heating and cooling, resource efficiency, waste minimization, and site disturbance limitation.
