St. Helena Island Resort Development

St. Helena Island, South Atlantic Ocean

The Department of Tourism at St. Helena Island selected BFJ to prepare preliminary design concepts for proposed tourism development on the Island. Studies were undertaken for two sites in the Town of Jamestown at Castle Gardens in downtown and at the historic fort overlooking the town and the Atlantic Ocean.

 Our design work focused on the need to respect local architectural character and scale; to utilize sustainable design and engineering practices; and to encourage local public use and access. The proposals provide for a mix of small-scale hotel, restaurant and recreational uses that take advantage of future tourism growth anticipated at St. Helena.
