In 2016, DHM Design hosted a select group of landscape architecture students from five different U.S. universities to study the Carenage in-depth and develop a series of design interventions to revitalize the inner harbor.   The students quickly came to appreciate the rich history and cultural importance of this unique urban landscape, and recognized its broader value to Grenada’s economy, culture, and national heritage.

The resulting “Carenage Revitalization Project” (see below) envisions a series of practical, implementable improvements to restore this unique historic district; so that it is more accessible and hospitable to locals and tourists, supports local businesses and is more resilient in the face of increasing environmental threat of storm surges and rising sea levels.
