Cornelia Hall Nears Completion

Our new dormitory, Cornelia Hall, is nearing completion and recently opened its doors to allow new faculty residents to move in. The project has been a great collaboration from start to finish and we are eager to enjoy the expanded living community developed now on our south campus when students arrive in September. Adjacent to Matsumura House, which opened in 2015 and neighbors Baxter House, Cornelia Hall now bridges the campus toward West House creating a ring of housing around the central academic spaces at school.
Breaking ground in November 2018, the 14,000 square foot residence hall was designed by Saltonstall Architects and constructed by Delphi Construction. The two story wood building consists of 19 student rooms and four faculty apartments along with a large central common area/living room with kitchen. The student rooms offer a mix of single and double units able to accommodate up to 26 students, while the four faculty apartments are arranged to house families of varying sizes from singles and couples to faculty with several children at home. Our two new dormitories, constructed over the last few years, have allowed us to close several smaller dormitories and increase efficiency in student and faculty housing, bringing 10 more faculty onto campus.
Will Saltonstall, Principal of Saltonstall Architects, commented on the design aspirations for the project. “In keeping with the sense of close-knit community that exists at Tabor Academy, our design for Cornelia Hall sought to create a family-like living space for students and faculty that promoted a feeling of home. The design places faculty and student spaces in a manner that fosters both casual interaction and supervision, encouraging the notion of dormitory as a large family residence. At the heart of the building, the centrally located entry incorporates a large common living space and café that further encourages interaction with fellow students while maintaining faculty supervision. This two-story height interior focal point is highlighted by vibrant colors, modern details, and a variety of seating opportunities. Additional features of the design include a very high level of energy efficiency, first and second floor enclosed study spaces for group project work, and a bridge-like walkway that connects the two second floor dormitory wings,” Saltonstall said.
Delphi’s Project Executive, Corey Heaslip shared his pride in the project saying, “Delphi was honored to be selected to manage the construction of this project for Tabor Academy. The project’s success can largely be attributed to the spirit of teamwork that persisted among the owner, the design team, Delphi’s team in the field and the many skilled tradesmen and women who contributed to this outstanding project.”
We are grateful to our donors, our terrific design and construction teams, and our senior leadership and facilities personnel who have managed this project so successfully for Tabor. We know it is going to be a fantastic learning/living environment for our students and faculty, and we can’t wait for everyone to move in!

    With the persistence of environmental change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. With support from National Geographic and The Redford Center, filmmaker Alizé Carrère has been documenting innovative human adaptations in places such as Madagascar, Bangladesh, Vanuatu, Norway and the United States. From floating farms in Bangladesh to ice pyramids in the Himalayas, these stories reveal incredible ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of environmental adversity. Alizé shares her experiences from the field looking at these unique examples of human adaptation, reminding us of the most important trait that has allowed for our continued survival on earth.
