Spiced Ink is a Johannesburg based architecture company. Our offices are in North Riding. Since 2005 we have specialized in residential housing design:


  • The home owner who is building their dream home 

  • The small to medium developer who is building multiple houses on a subdivided plot.

René "Spice" Malherbe


Founder and registered architect, Rene “Spice” Malherbe is passionate about:


  • Dream Homes: Designing homes that reflect their owner’s personality

                                 - there is no better compliment than when my client’s friend told her “this home is so you!”

  • Efficient Small Developments: Designing properties which maximize the value of the land so that the small business developer can have a cost effective design without compromising on uniqueness


After many years in large architecture firms, Spice came to the realization that running his own business would enable him to deliver on his belief in the value of providing that personal touch his clients needed. 

When Spiced Ink takes on a design project the architect who does the work is the person who works with you. This is a key ingredient in the Spiced Ink formula that delivers houses which reflect the dreams of the owners.
