+NESS FAQ’s
Listed are some questions we get asked a lot. If there is a query of yours that we haven’t covered below please get in touch via the online contact form: here

WHERE DOES THE NAME COME FROM AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN?*

Pronounced NESS (the ‘+’ is silent), the project takes its name from our endeavour to uncover the essence or soul of our cities through its architecture. In this light one can ask what is the ‘Cape Town-ness’ of Cape Town? or what is ‘the London-ness’ of London?

The name +NESS is inspired from a line from the movie You Me and Dupree (watch it here)
