2024 Sunshine Coast Regional Architecture Awards


Residential projects took centre stage at the 2024 Sunshine Coast Regional Architecture Awards, with each of the awarded projects a house or holiday home.

The jury praised each of the successful projects for their ability to adapt to the specific climates and geographic settings in which they are situated, such as coastal, riverfront and countryside locations.

The esteemed Gabriel Poole Award for Building of the Year was presented to Bombala by Sealand Architects. While the home sits quietly in the street, the design employs volume, courtyards and screening to organise spaces and curate views. Featuring a “water block design,” Bombala was praised by the jury as “[…] a masterclass in designing for site conditions.”

Elsewhere in the awards, Corymbia by Tim Ditchfield Architects was named 2024 Regional Project of the Year. The intergenerational home was celebrated for its “universal accessibility, skilfully resolved details and thoughtful material choices.”

Award winners and recipients of regional commendations will now progress to the 2024 Queensland Architecture Awards, to be announced on 21 June.
