Interior architect and Feng Shui master with passion

In a harmonious home lives a healthy person.


Kathrin Schmack


What does harmonious architecture mean? In which rooms do people feel comfortable? How do we achieve more intensity and joy of life? How do we regain our basic trust in the world? These are the questions of our time and they can be answered.

In 20 years, countless consultations and planning, I have not only realized beautiful interior architecture, but also witnessed how life paths of my clients and customers have changed. How doors have opened, new possibilities and opportunities for the future of these people. Because my clients don't want to be statists in their built environment. They want to participate actively and with all their senses in that which is called life.

For the future of these people I have refined my knowledge, verified it and concretized the SpiritPlanning© application system into a powerful system. I am convinced that the resulting process helps people to answer the questions of our time and to translate them into valuable future architecture. Characterized by lightness, clarity and symmetry. Individual and in harmony with the surroundings.

Through this process, my clients and builders not only find more harmony in their lives, but they literally get out of the so called "hamster wheel" of material constraints. Not only their environment, but their whole life is shaped by this new lightness of being. It is a wonderful way from consumer to earth dweller.

Because we interior designers create much more than just rooms. We design the future.

Yours, Kathrin Schmack

SpiritPlanning MEANING

Unification of the eastern teachings of Feng Shui and the western, modern building culture.
Space communication for our souls.


The harmony theory Feng Shui is a Taoist art and has a significant influence on the eastern building tradition. Translated, the Chinese word Feng Shui means something like "wind and water." It is all based on the idea of bringing people into harmony with their surroundings. There are numerous holistic techniques for this, which I myself learned from three great masters who have had a significant influence on me. Master Yap Cheng Hai, Master Yap Bo Chu and Master Eva Wong.

They have provided me with a completely new way of looking at and applying to architecture that allows us to meet today's complex demands within climate change in particular, in a completely new way. We don't have to wait for the perfect floor plan when we know techniques to conjure true strength even from a weak place. Now in the value shift is the moment to understand that it's all about human needs, surrounded by natural laws that we must respect. If we use, for example, the knowledge in the correct handling of the 5 elements, with street or land formulas, completely new, armonious foundations arise to consciously design future architecture and strong power places.


The human being in the western modern age lives in an environment that is characterized by functionality, ratio and materialism. Every single one of us learns from childhood to integrate into our system. Consequently, we live in spaces that are designed to meet our physical and social needs; indeed, we are inevitably put into architectural spaces. The size of these spaces is not crucial. Rather, what is crucial is that while our bodies may settle into an apartment or a house, our souls definitely want more.

We are and remain biological beings and our soul needs the connection to nature, to the cosmos. Consider that you are right now, where you read these lines, perhaps in a room, in a train or also in a cafe, in any case, however, you are in the space. Together with me and all other people. All of our souls and our hearts want to feel exactly this connection at every moment of our existence.

Through space communication, which we integrate into Western architectural planning with the transcendent, Eastern-influenced space design technique of SpiritPlanning, we address the needs of our souls. We satisfy our souls and our hearts and learn to live more and more from our holistic source of being.

An interview with interior designer and Feng Shui master Kathrin Schmack from Düsseldorf about people and space in harmony.

What does Feng Shui mean and where does it come from? Feng Shui is a Daoist harmony teaching from China and translated means as much as "wind and water". The goal of Feng Shui is the harmonization of human with his environment, which can be achieved through a special design of living and living spaces and is therefore also gaining more and more attention in the Western world. The wisdom of nature says that every place has its own character and thus the potential for the best possible development of human and space. This potential is implemented by interior designer and Feng Shui master Kathrin Schmack from Düsseldorf in international building projects within her planning office Genius Loci and in her self-developed concept "SpiritPlanning", which has been tested for years.

MRS. SCHMACK, WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU DO? SpiritPlanning combines Feng Shui with western building culture.

WHY IS THAT A GOOD IDEA? Feng Shui is not about appearance, it's about making people feel good. Interior design is more about aesthetics. When you combine the two, you get homes or offices that look good and bring people peace, harmony and clarity.

DO YOU HAVE AN EXAMPLE? Front yards or the lobby of a business should be as spacious as possible. I call such areas "pocket for the money." A spacious entrance is calming and helps new ideas to emerge - the basis for economic success.
