Helgen Architects, LLC was founded by Erik Helgen, AIA in 2011.  Erik and his family moved back to Minnesota after nearly a decade in New York City in 2009.  During his time in New York, Erik had the good fortune to work alongside Andrew Bernheimer and Jared Della Valle of DB Architects.  Many of the projects represented in Eriks portfolio were completed as an Associate at DB, acting in the role of Project Manager and Lead Designer.

Erik and his family now live in Saint Paul, Minnesota and enjoy adventures in both the cities and wilderness of the upper midwest.
