Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for Montiverdi Estates, located on the western slopes of Caulfield, West Vancouver. Oberlander worked on this project from 1979 to 1982, year of the completion. Oberlander worked on the site plan for the estate with Arthur Erickson and Eva Matsuzaki. The project consists in 20 custom houses, designed by Erickson, and nestled into a forest on a rock plateau overlooking Howe Sound. The estate, built on a slope, comprises four types of houses: uphill units, terrace units, coutyard units and downhill units.

The project series contains textual records, such as correspondence, including with architect and client, Oberlander's concept development notes, research, specifications, a geotechnical report, cost estimates. The project is also documented through a design developement drawing showing planting and a plant list, and six working drawings, including landscape plans, a site plan and a site section.
