Turkel Design is a small, young, and energetic residential design firm focused on systems-built and prefabricated single-family and multi-unit residential design.  We work with domestic and international clients each year to create thoughtfully conceived and carefully crafted residential projects.  Through our remote working method and the use of online meeting tools, it is our mission to facilitate the delivery of high quality architecture to a wide variety of regions, especially to those that have traditionally lacked access to superior design.

Although we are largely based in the Northeastern US with a physical office located in Cambridge MA, we have staff located throughout North America, and encourage working remotely to foster a desired work-life balance and location/scheduling flexibility.  The successful candidate will be required to work from this Cambridge office from September through December of 2014 at which point they will be free to work from their chosen location. 

We are a small non-conventional practice with big dreams.
