DWELLING is a book about how we can forge deeper connections to our built environment.

In this book, Bill gives you a series of tools - poems, imagery, meditative exercises - that can be used to change the way you live and experience your home.

Through his perspective as an ecological architect, Bill invites you to engage with your inner Home - your soul, your essence, your needs and aspirations - so that you may find ways to reflect these in your physical home.

At its core, and deeply rooted to ecological living, DWELLING aims to change the way you relate to architecture so that you may create spaces that make you feel alive, nurture your soul and help you thrive.

BILL HUTCHINS

Bill is a poet and an architect, who tells stories through space and form. He founded Helicon Works Architects, a unique architectural collaborative community, in 1989, based in Takoma Park, MD, where he also lives with his family.

Bill has learned DWELLING during this time — his personal unfolding has informed his architectural work, as it gave him the eyes to see DWELLING. Bill has also developed DWELLING by working with clients in the making of their homes.

The creating and building of his family’s home, completed in 2006, galvanized his understanding of DWELLING. His home is alive, playful, healing, with cozy spaces for intimate moments, and a luminous gathering room, where he and his wife share their home for many events.

The DWELLING book is a result of his explorations through spiritual texts, meditation, poetry, being in nature, dance and playing with his daughter.

Bill is also the Board President of a Nepalese foundation - www.KRMEF.org. In his role there he is helping to bring sustainable practices to the foundation’s village just south of Kathmandu. This community is another family for Bill.

To get in touch with Bill for a tour of his home, information on workshops, talking engagements or general questions, please write to bill@dwellingtomakehome.com. You can also engage with Bill through our Facebook community.

Dwelling is multi-faceted. It is poetry and prose. It offers medicine for the spirit, ideas for the mind, exercises for the body, and tools for the hands. It is a great guide for dreamers, planners, doer’s, and celebrators!

EMILY GUPTA

Dwelling invited me to stop and dwell - within myself, within my body, within the spaces of my home.

Our homes, like our bodies, are sacred containers of our souls. They contain and nourish us. They support us to relate to ourselves and each other from our spiritual center - if we dare to drop down and experience ourselves and the spaces we occupy that way. Dwelling is an invitation and a guide to do just that.

ANNE DYKERS

Dwelling brings a purposeful consideration to the entire endeavor [of ecological living], opening the door for conscious living, design, building and development that holds inner and outer worth of all things as paramount.
