Green Architecture & Natural Building for Healthy, Ecological & Modern living

Thank you for your interest in Helicon Works Architects. We’ve been practicing green architecture and natural building since 1989. Each project is a unique exploration, seeking the most ecologically conscious response to both client and place. We can help you design and build your new home, add onto or remodel 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 green 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.
