Sunshine Coast Design Book


The Sunshine Coast Design book is the result of a collaborative process that included:

  • residents
  • design professionals
  • planners
  • professional associations and
  • community groups of the Sunshine Coast.

They have all contributed to a discussion focused on what we, the community of the Sunshine Coast, value about this place.

Sunshine Coast Design is for everyone who makes decisions about design on the Sunshine Coast. It is hoped that this book will inspire, educate and guide great design, and help us recognise and celebrate the great design that already exists. It is a call to action for the future we all want to create for the Sunshine Coast.


The book features over 120 stunning photographs depicting a selection of our special places and examples of well designed homes, buildings, parks, public spaces, streets and neighbourhoods on the Sunshine Coast. Explanatory text accompanies the photographs to help communicate our values. These values were determined by our community about this place and what to keep in mind throughout the design process.
