Beausejour Windmill

Carriacou / Grenada

This windmill is located at the junction of the Beausejour main road in Carricou. COCOA was commissioned by the Grenada Board of Tourism to re-design the windmill to accommodate a tourists shop. The proposal entailed the restoration of the original stone work and the creation of a skylight, with minimal interventions within the space of the windmill. Great care was taken to specify restoration of the original stonework and the removal of plant matter infused within its structure. The only significant building works to be performed is the introduction of a skylight at the apex of the structure and a toilet facility placed at the back of the windmill with a ramp that wraps the circumference at its base.
