Progress on “the Tandy”
Posted on: Dec 13, 2017
Progress on our new facility known as “the Tandy” is more visible each day! The entire Holland Hall community has been patient and accommodating with the construction on campus this year, and it is exciting to see the building begin to take shape.
To see the progression for yourself, please check out our live view “TandyCam” and watch the timelapse footage from the groundbreaking to now. The timelapse will be updated approximately every two weeks so check back to see new progress.

The A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center and Chapman Green
Designed to be a central part of the community, the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center will be the focus of Holland Hall’s 162-acre campus. The new Marylouise Dining Hall will allow for all Upper and Middle School students to use the same dining facility. A centrally located and modernized kitchen will provide for a wider variety of healthy food choices, separate serving stations, and reduced cost of food production by combining two kitchens. The A.R. Wellness Center will house a wellness floor where our community will have access to updated facilities with an aim toward training the whole person. Research shows us that important learning happens outside the classroom. The Tandy will be a space for students and faculty to interact, study, and further engage with one another.
What’s included in the new A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center:
- The Chapman Green
- Kitchen and Dining Area for Middle and Upper School students
- A.R. Wellness Center
- Alumni Center attached to a balcony overlooking Hardesty Field
- Locker rooms, fitness training, and rehabilitation facilities
- Meeting rooms and conference center for use by students, faculty, families, and the community
The Chapman Green
The Chapman Green provides the backdrop for what we hope all students experience at Holland Hall. As an extension of our focus on strong, healthy community relationships, the green provides a comfortable, inviting space for students, faculty, and families to engage with one another around storied school events like Field Day and Primary School Night. The Chapman Green also invites casual interactions and connections outside of the traditional school walls. Just as the Upper School Barnard Commons has helped create friendships that last lifetimes, the Chapman Green will extend those possibilities, building on the strength of Holland Hall’s close-knit community.
