Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for Feigl Residence, located on Drummond Drive, in the University Endowment Land, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Oberlander worked on this project in the early 1990s. Oberlander's project for the Feigl residence consisted in redesigning the garden initally executed in the late 1950s by Justice & Webb Landscape Architects. She later returned in 2007-2008 for the design and the planting of an "green shield" of trees to improve to view from the residence and block the noises from the neighbouring developments.

The project series contains only nine drawing, including preliminary grading plans, site plans, and land surveys used as reference.The project series also comprises textual records, including concept notes by Oberlander, correspondence with client and contractors, photographs of the existing landscaping, and cost estimates. The 2007-2008 addition is documented through a series of sketches of the view on the garden from the house, correspondence with contractors and client.
