Before setting up The Double Unit, we spent many years working in the architecture and property sectors. We know these markets inside out and can construct a considered PR strategy that hits the right targets.

Our core team is supported by a number of sector specialists which we draw upon regularly to ensure our clients are receiving the support they need.

Our clients choose us because we are responsive, receptive and work closely with them in a completely transparent way.

 ‘The Double Unit’ derives from Le Corbusier’s theory of mathematical proportions in the human body which can be used to improve the appearance and function of architecture and space. Our approach matches the human figure as imagined by Le Corbusier – its feet planted firmly on the ground, centred and proportioned, with its hand pointing to the sky.
