There are some classic, historic buildings that many interior designers or architects do not want to alter too much. Kristina Wolf is an interior designer who owns her own company, Kristina Wolf Design, and will be creating the space for the firehouse in the Twin Peaks area of San Francisco.

The client is a young executive, and wants to honor the space and its history rather than starting from scratch.

"While putting his own personal touch on the building, the client is being careful to allow for future generations to share in the history of this site," said Wolf.

The building, which was built it 1909, will have some modern flare while maintaining the original design. Wolf plans on leaving the old photographs that are currently plastered on the wall to evoke memories of the firehouse's history.

Prospective interior designers may be able to land a job once they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in this field is expected to increase by 19 percent between 2008 and 2018.
