In the period circa 1920-1930 Bent Helweg-Møller was a popular and recognized architect. He was responsible for the construction, reconstruction and restoration of several large public and private projects, which often included complete interiors. His work, which incorporated decorative elements, pointed towards a continental European style we today know as Art Deco. He was responsible for the Danish Pavillion at the 1922 Rio de Janerio World Exhibition and the pavillion of Royal Copenhagen at the 1925 Paris World Exhibition. He also had a lasting cooperation with Factory Owner Peter F. S. Heering, constructing their "liqueur" pavillion at Tivoli gardens and later the extensive reconstruction of the seventeenth century palace "Heerings Gård". Here he developed his own style mixing modernity with decorative elements. He also constructed and decorated the headquarter of newspaper company Berlingske Hus and a number of private villas in the same period.
