The Willoughby Incinerator is one of 12 designed by Walter Burley Griffin. The building was constructed as part of an employment initiative undertaken by the council during the great depression. The incinerator operated from 1934-67 and the sewerage plant continued until 1974. In 1968 a public campaign saved the building from demolition and it was listed with the National Trust & Royal Australian Institute of Architects. In 2007 the council agreed to restore and adapt the building and approached SJB Architects. The building was officially opened on 2 April 2011 and houses a cafe space, artist studio and exhibition space on the lower level.
