About Us

Helicon Works Architects specializes in green architecture and natural building. We've been practicing ecologically conscious architecture since 1989. HWA can help you design and build your new home, add onto or renovate your existing home. Our knowledgeable team and group of collaborators will engage with you in a thoughtful exploration and co-creative process to evolve a design solution that merges your needs and the site’s attributes. From the onset, our work is imbued with a sustainable approach, technical know-how, environmental consciousness and spiritual considerations so that your Home becomes a reflection of who you are within the intimate relationship with its place and context. Our architecture studio is based in the Washington DC metro area, but we’ve also carried out work in Mexico, California and Vermont, amongst other places. We offer design, documentation, and educational services to guide you through every step of the process. We strive to provide a place where you can feel comfortable to explore your vision of home; a place where experience and an understanding for healthy and mindful living are our greatest assets. The founder of Helicon Works, Bill Hutchins, has been doing this work since he was 15 years old, and still loves it as much 46 years later! He practices what he advocates, as documented in his book, Dwelling, A Poetic Exploration of Home. You can read about Dwelling on
