We hired Helicon Works for an extensive renovation of an early 20th century Craftman Cape in Takoma Park, MD.

Bill Hutchins at Helicon Works designed my straw bale very 'green' solar house. It is a fantastic home, energy efficient, and very attractive too.

Bill was great to work with, he planned the design process with a great team of individuals associated with Helicon Works.

Highly recommended - con...

My ‘dream house’ was just some vague ideas, a location and a view, and a budget until I was fortunate enough to find the architect Bill Hutchins of Heliconworks (www.heliconworks.org). Working together, in a few months Far Muse was on the drawing boards. Starting with some photographs of old houses ... More...

Bill Hutchins of Helicon Works was the architect for our strawbale addition. If the fact that I never want to leave my home doesn't express how much we love what Bill did, then let me explain. Before putting pencil to paper, Bill encouraged us to think about what we wanted in our space. He includ... More...
