Edith Ingpen House(From Heritage Council Victoria database)

The Edith Ingpen House is historically significant for its association with Edith Ingpen, the first woman graduate in architecture at the University of Melbourne (1933). Ingpen started her career at a time when only 2% of registered architects in Victoria were women, and became a vocal champion of women in the profession. In the early 1930s she was a valued associate in Harold Desbrowe-Annear's firm, and then established her own practice becoming one of the best-known women architects practising solo in Melbourne. During World War II, Ingpen took up a post with the Victorian Public Works Department, the first professional woman architect to be employed there.
