Tree Island defies limitations, transforming its compact-sized house into a unique family home. Measuring just four and a half meters wide, the home cleverly rises against a neighbouring warehouse conversion, maximizing vertical space. A central, light-filled void connects living areas and hosts a thriving fig tree. A courtyard and rear garden offer tranquillity and practicality, while a hidden roof terrace provides a private retreat. This home ingeniously incorporates natural light, greenery, and expansive living spaces, turning constraints into design advantages. By Sydney-based Carter Williamson.
