Dimitrios Pispilis
Architect / Senior Manager / Retail & Interior
Based in
Nuremberg, Germany
More than 10 years experience
36 years old

Multi-talented young professional who studied architecture and has worked in retail and fashion. I have combined the three of them and stepped into the challenging and intriguing field of retail architecture.

Up to now, I have gathered work experience on many levels, from design to project managemen


t, and among many countries. I have been contributing and involved in developing new concepts that resulted in worldwide roll out for new stores. Successfully delivered flagship projects with increasing sensibility to interior design and elevated level of detail.

I am driven and persistent in my work. I constantly put an effort into evolving and improving not only myself and my skills, but also the projects I am involved in. I challenge and question the status quo, whenever I feel there is a greater benefit in doing so.

My interests lie in traveling, art, architecture, exploring new cultures, food, well-being, languages, European cinema and the people around me.
