Architecture of Sydney


One of Willoughby's main claims to fame architecturally, is that it is home to the 1934 Willoughby Incinerator, designed by Walter Burley Griffin and his associate Eric Nicholls. Nicholls designed quite a few other buildings in Willoughby too, including the Albert Chowne Memorial Hall, and Willoughby Park Bowling Club. The suburb has many different styles of houses; the most common type being the Australian version of the California bungalow from the 1920s.
