CKA has been commissioned to design a multi-million-dollar extension to one of Melbourne’s most beautiful historic homes, Invergowrie. Completed in 1851, Invergowrie is a rare example of a surviving nineteenth century home. Throughout its history, Invergowrie has fulfilled various roles, before returning to private ownership in the early 90s. Purchased by Stephen and Angela Tomisich in 2021, the Tomisich’s are determined to restore the home to its original glory. Engaging CKA shortly after, the Tomisich’s are passionate about the preservation of Invergowrie and keen for us to provide suitable additions to Invergowrie’s grounds. As a building of immense historical and aesthetic significance to the state of Victoria, the Tomisich’s are intent on reconnecting it to the public and have already begun opening up the grounds for school children and those passionate about Melbourne’s architectural history to come learn about the property. After successfully obtaining a planning permit from Heritage Victoria, we have been working on construction drawings that both honour the historic architecture whilst allowing for comfortable contemporary living. The opportunity we have been given to contribute to such a notable building in Australian architectural history is a privilege.
