Full Details

After first debuting as a Modernism Week Featured Home in February 2019, Axiom Desert House by Turkel Design is a stunning, net-zero energy, systems-built jewel that serves as the private residence of designers Joel and Meelena Turkel, as well as a Living Lab for design professionals and enthusiasts alike. 

The panelized prefabricated home’s open plan, indoor/outdoor flow, and innovative use of materials and space are a testament to modern prefab, celebrating transformative desert design that is simple, elegant, and replicable. Marvin Windows Ultimate Lift-and-Slide Doors provide a seamless connection between indoors and out, while flexible, multifunctional furniture systems from Resource Furniture transform its rooms from one purpose to another. Signature fixtures and finishes allow an array of gorgeous high-end products from Corian, Dacor, Dunn-Edwards, and more to sing in their environs.   

Tour the modern oasis that provided an opportunity for Joel and Meelena Turkel to turn the lens upon themselves, creating a transformative, fossil fuel-free design that fuses process with collaboration into one creative ecosystem.
