The Syros Residence is a monumental structure designed by architecture studio Block722. The water-facing home overlooks a stunning view of the Aegean sea and features an exterior that is clad in a combination of stone and wood materials.

While the monumental structure gets its sleek appearance from its stone steps, heavy walls and aged brick accents, it is simultaneously made warm and cozy with the infusion of warm wood finishes.

Named after the Greek island in which it is located, Syros Residence combines modern sophistication with the comfort and practicality of a traditional beach home. Designed to keep cool during hot summer months, this stunning abode embodies a serene aesthetic that is personalized with quirky touches -- from patterned textile decor to raw wood furniture and potted plants.
