The Willoughby Incinerator is an Art Deco gem that has been lovingly restored and converted into a a cafe and art gallery. Built and designed by Walter Burley Griffin in 1930, it is also very historic. As you may or may not know, American architect Walter Burley Griffin worked at Frank Lloyd Wright's Oak Park Studio (1901 - 1905) and then later won an international competition to design Australia's capital city Canberra in 1912. After he completed Canberra, he made his home in Castlecrag and set about designing and developing the three suburbs of Castlecrag, Middle Cove and Castle Cove. There are also several Burley Griffin designed stone buildings in Castlecrag that still stand in addition to the quirky suburb and street layout which anyone familiar with Canberra would recognise as being designed by Walter Burley Griffin due to its circular nature.
Anyway, I have been meaning to take some photos of this art deco beauty for some time now and finally this morning I got the chance!
