Scope and Content
This project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's project for the garden of Dr. and Mrs. S. Friedman residence, a split-level house designed by Fred Lasserre, at the corner of Chancellor Boulevard and Queensland Road in Vancouver, British Columbia. Oberlander worked on this project in 1953. The project was one of the first residence garden designs by Oberlander in Vancouver. Oberlander was hired to create a landscape for a triangle-shaped site with a steep slope.
The project series contains a list of plants for the garden, reference drawings, and a survey plan for the lot, as well as design development and working drawings, and two photographs.
