House Tour: Tantalizing summer house on the island of Syros

Residence in Syros II-Block722-01-1 Kindesign

A beautiful summer house, Residence on Syros II was designed by Block722, hosting a family of four and guests to stay at this incredible villa on the island of Syros, Greece. The steep and somewhat intense geography of the land was a dominating factor in the design process. An expansive staircase leads from the top of the hills towards the house, which helps to intensify the experience of the rugged landscape. Entryway to the home is surrounded by the volumetric main areas of the villa, which culminates ultimately to a large opening that welcomes its inhabitants to expansive views of the Aegean Sea. The home is comprised of 2,163 square feet (201 square meters), divided into clean and square volumes for the public areas, living room and kitchen. The private bedroom areas are segregated into a partially buried rectangular volume.

Buried into a slope is a guesthouse, which is defined by a stone wall, seen commonly in local architecture. The main volume features an open floor plan, with a continuous view to the outdoors and cozy living spaces adjacent to a fireplace. Outside, there are two open courtyards protected from the sun, while a central area of the court is open to lounging in the sun and a children’s play area.
