Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for the Russell Residence in Lake Bay, near in Tacoma, Washington, United States. Oberlander worked on this project in 1986-1989 with architect Arthur Erickson. The project consisted in building a new house and garden on the 300 acres family farm, located on a promotery overlooking Puget Sound. The landscape design included the planting of rhododendrons nestled into the woodland along one side of the looped drive leading to a parking area, and an herbs and vegetables garden next to the house, near the dining room. Oberlander created a meadow area at the centre of the loop entrance drive with spring bulbs and summer wildflowers providing interest at all seasons. The project was completed in 1989.

The project series contains sketches, design development drawings, including plans of the herbs and vegetables gardens, planting plans and schematic landscape plans, and working drawings, including planting plans, site plans and grading plans. The project is also documented through Oberlander's concept notes, research material, landscape specifications, correspondence with client and architects, and financial documents. The project series also comprises photographs of Cornelia Hahn Oberlander and other visiting the site, and photographs of the construction of the residence and landspace work.
