Malherbe Rust Architects started as a small practice in Paarl, South Africa in March 1989.
We have grown to a medium sized group of skilled professionals over our 30 years of experience.

The core value of our practice is to do contextual architecture.

The forms and icons are not borrowed from history books. The manner in which new authentic forms are introduced – their scale and presentation – determines the architecture that both ‘stands out’ and ‘stands in’. Together with an appreciation of the cultural resources of the community, humility and discipline, we design our buildings which the community applauds:

An Award of Merit and of Excellence was conferred for our design quality in 2014 by the South African Institute of Architects.
