New York's Finest Makeovers

This week, the designers give back to true heroes, designing spaces in real New York City fire stations for FDNY firefighters. In the most intense challenge in Designstar history, the designers go through firefighter training for inspiration. Braving fire simulators in excess of 700 degrees, the designers walk in firefighters' shoes to better understand their clients. Before they get started, the Judges mix up the teams, creating some interesting new dynamics. At the fire stations, one designer falls back on old tricks, while another takes on a major renovation job. In the race to the finish, one team struggles to complete their space when a construction accident forces one designer out of action. In the end, one designer is eliminated from the competition, and seven survive to see another day of design.
