Design principles

The following 10 design principles are based on what our community values about the Sunshine Coast. The principles do not push a certain architectural or landscape style. They aim to express the four values and provide ideas for working with them.

The principles should be considered in the design process for all built form at any scale, including homes, pathways, streets, parks, public spaces, commercial and public buildings, and neighborhoods – everything we construct that contributes to the place where we live, work and play.
