Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for Dr. Norman Keevil Residence (also known as The Hollies), located on Crescent street, at the corner of Hudson Street, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Oberlander worked on this project from 1984-1989 with architect Arthur Erickson. While Erickson was in charge of additions and restorations to classical revival house built in 1914, Oberlander was responsable of the restoration of the historic garden. The project also included the addition of a tennis court, and planters along the house.

The project series also documents addition made to the residence in 2003 by Nick Milkovich Architect and Arthur Erickson as design consultant. Oberlander also worked on new planing for this project. The additions included a new roof deck for the music room and a new covered patio behing the music room. Oberlander landscape work consisted in addition new planting in the area surronding the music room.

The project series contains photographs of the garden, specifications, correspondence with clients and consultants, some notes by Oberlander, press articles on the project and proposal for the building restoration by Arthur Erickson architects. The project series also comprises sketches, design development drawings, such as planting plans, and working drawings, including planting plans, irrigation plans and landscape plans. The project series also includes photographs of the other residence of the Keevils on Drummond Street, Vancouver, for which Oberlander also did the landscaping.

Documents related to the 2003 additions includes planting sketches and design development drawings, including planting plans, site plans, and elevations of the residence showing the landscape work.
