Milky Tea Join Forces with Smiling Wolf and BCA Landscape for New London Office

We’re very excited to announce that we’ve teamed up creative studios Smiling Wolf and BCA Landscape to amplify our London presence with a new office in the capital!

Based in the Shoreditch creative hub Rochelle School, the office will provide support for each studio’s expanding client roster in the city, also acting as a base for both business development and client services.

The move marks a significant milestone for each of us, with the new location complementing our existing Liverpool headquarters by bolstering services supplied to clients.

The new premises also offers us the opportunity to work together on large projects as a team. With collective disciplines of landscape architecture and graphic design, animation, illustration, branding, green environmental planning and games development at our disposal, the joint venture offers increased opportunity for all involved!

Smiling Wolf, who recently embarked on a brand development project for Rochelle School. have also won a contract with southeast Acoustic Consultants, Cole Jarman Associates to create a new website.

BCA Landscape’s expanding portfolio of design work in London includes the flagship ‘One the Elephant’ project for international developers Lend Lease and The London Borough of Southwark. The scheme includes both public and private realm landscape with a value over £2.5 million and is set to be one of the greenest tall building residential schemes in London.

Milky Tea CEO and Founder Jon Holmes said: “Rochelle School is a fantastic studio environment and we are extremely proud of it being our new London home. Having been actively working in London since our 2005 launch, opening a studio in the capital has been a long-term goal. It will be used to support and work more closely with our clients and as a bridge to build on our previous successes.”

Smiling Wolf Managing Director Simon Rhodes said: “We’re proud to be part of a Liverpool Vanguard in London – and particularly excited by the opportunities of collaborating further with our friends at BCA Landscape and Milky Tea”.

BCA Landscape Managing Director Andy Thomson said: “We are all very excited here at BCA Landscape to be sharing our new London base at the Rochelle School Studio in Shoreditch with our great friends and creative collaborators at Smiling Wolf and Milky Tea. It is an important move for us and will further enhance our abilities to provide a high quality design and delivery service for existing and new clients in London and the South East”.

Housing a mixture of organisations and individuals working in creative areas such as painting, film, fashion, graphic design, music and architecture, the studio and exhibition space boasts clients such as jewellery designer, Katie Hillier, Frieze and Hall London.
