In this paper, we are going to introduce an approach to convert the topology of a topological space to another topology (in fact, a coarser topology).  For this purpose,  we consider  a topological space $(X, \tau)$ with a closed point $p$ of its points. Using  a grill $\mathcal{G}$  on the space $(X, \tau)$ and  the closure operator  associated with $\tau$, we define a Kuratowski closure operator $cl^*_p$ on $X$ to create the desired topology. We then characterize the form of this resulting topology and also determine its relationship to the initial topology of the space.
