GDT’s East Village kitchen project combines the use of sustainable and salvaged materials with efficient design. Storage is maximized by creating spaces to both display and store – making dishes and glassware part of the décor, and the kitchen does double duty as both a place to prepare good and  a bar-like gathering area. The countertop and cabinets were made from historic wood salvaged from New York buildings, adding a bit of local history into the client’s home. Furthering this historical flavor, GDT decided to reuse a vintage 1950s stove and 1930s sink, that were found in a Manhattan building. The kitchen is compact, stylish and environmentally sound.

Not limited to kitchens, GDT is also responsible for the casket-factory-turned-bar, Pine Box, which Inhabitat visted last year. The space is known for its cozy wooden interior and vegan Bloody Marys. Whether the project is a kitchen, commercial space or apartment interior, GDT uses their commitment to being environmentally friendly as a driving force in design, rather than a limitation.

    Horrible contractor. I had a terrible personal experience with this contractor in regards to a millwork project. They were slow to perform and the craftmanship was terrible! I had an installed product give out on me within 2 weeks of usage, with a full warranty mind you on workmanship, and they won't even respond to my requests for them to come out and repair it! Terrible and nightmare to work with. All that matters is the paycheck to them. Installed a shotty veneer over a piece of plywood and called themselves "Custom Professionals"!! Take your well earned money elsewhere to someone that knows what they are doing! GDT is just a front for another millwork company that they have worked with in the past and just charge a markup on it! The people you speak with are dumb as boards they install a piece of paper over and you have to wait for any answers from them while they ask the real contractors who are performing the work! Hire a real millworker (one not associated with this company), for a real product to be installed. Couldn't care less about the quality and craftmanship, only see $$$$. Shotty product, shotty people, shotty company.
