about guavalime

our story

GuavaLime was conceived twenty years ago when two architects realised the market needed a property developer that would never cut corners when it came to delivering high quality, design focussed developments. 

Founded by award-winning architects Michael Loucas and Con Zahos, GuavaLime delivers innovative, high quality, and commercially successful projects underpinned by a passion for design excellence and enduring place-making. Their partnership was built on a professional history tracing back to 1988 when the partners first began designing residential, multi-residential, and commercial properties in Adelaide, Australia. 

Since then, GuavaLime has expanded its scope throughout Brisbane and across the country, solidifying a reputation built on a legacy of delivery high-quality architectural developments. We deliver major multi-residential projects, create new precincts for living, and set new standards for placemaking with our award-winning hotels, mixed-use developments, and multi-residential properties.

our approach

Our mission is to create environments that are innovative, sustainable and profitable, using an approach that balances practicality and commercial awareness with a strong design aesthetic and sense of integrity.


We believe that success rests on the ability to identify and deliver the right product for the right location and market – which is why we are highly selective when it comes to choosing development opportunities.


At GuavaLime, we also understand the power of relationships. Years of working closely with public and private institutions and remaining adaptable and responsive in our approach has made us adept at managing key stakeholders, allowing us to achieve the best possible outcome for every project.


Above all else, our approach is underpinned by the pursuit of quality. It’s what underlies our decision-making process at every level, providing guidance when solutions are sought and enabling us to draw the best creative resources to a project.


From funding packages and risk management through to lateral design solutions and marketing, we have a thorough understanding of all the elements it takes to make a development a success.


GuavaLime incorporates the fundamentals of sustainable design into all of our projects. We combine long-proven, sound design principles with new, energy-efficient technology to create environments which epitomise sustainable living. We continually challenge ourselves to innovate and explore new advances in sustainability, incorporating them into our projects wherever commercially viable. Perhaps most importantly, we consider the whole life of a building and how it will be used by residents and tenants both now and in future generations in order to enhance and encourage sustainable living practices.
