Thread Collective is a multi-disciplinary design firm based in New York, whose projects include landscape and temporary installations, and architecture. Elliott Maltby has a degree in landscape architecture with extensive experience in public art; Mark Mancuso and Gita Nandan have degrees in architecture. Thread Collective is committed to exploring the seams between building, art and landscape, not only as disciplinary boundaries to be blurred, but as spatial edges, rich with design opportunity.
Sustainable design is a priority and is consciously integrated in the design process at every level. Thread Collective has completed a 4,500sf renovation in Brooklyn -- a green conversion of a warehouse to residential and commercial art studios. Green design was considered throughout, from thermal sealing to non-toxic materials to energy efficiency and solar panels.
Current work further investigates sustainable design principles with the introduction of BIODRIVE, an educational portable greenhouse powered on 100% biodeisel, to be made available to various learning institutions; a seven condo unit building designed to meet LEED certification; the development of sustainable housing units, and a committed relationship with GreenHomeNYC.
