Helm Architecture, a central London based practice, was established by Nicholas Helm in 1991. Research alongside practice, some in close association with the Bartlett (UCL), has led to collaborative work in an impressive range of fields, such as theatre, performance, archaeology, education and museum design. Adding to this refreshingly diverse body of work, the practice is currently working on The Rose Revealed Visitor Centre, Shakespeare North, the Octagon Bolton and the Hoghton Tower Visitor Centre. All this and more; the practice is also making a name for itself in the residential division. Amongst the residential appointments are new-build houses in the English countryside and abroad, as well as adventurous interventions and additions to properties in central London. The majority of projects are sited in the urban fabric and for every project the detailed consideration and appraisal of the brief in its particular physical context drives the design development. A collaborative approach brings together individuals and groups with diverse skills to work closely with clients, communities and end users to deliver unique settings for engagement.
