From Melbourne architect Edwards Moore, a defiantly pleasant renovation of an inhospitable urban home. Facing a long and narrow ground floor space, Moore took the ambitious step of inserting not one, but two court yards into the floor plan, dramatically improving the natural light and air flow. Elements of Japanese gardens in the court yards offset with not-so-vaguely-dilapidated design touches make for a compelling look that I wouldn't mind making my own. For more, visit Edwards Moore.

We're pretty jazzed about our discovery of Sydney-based interior designer Stacey Kouros. She's found a design language made from the perfect mix of minimalist white planes and sharp angles blended (somehow seamlessly) with eclectic patterns and textures. We're especially stuck on the charming subtly of the fish-scale tile backsplash. Find out more at Stacey Kouros Design. Via desire to inspire.

Discovered on Remodelista: The Whale Beach House from Australia's Tobias Partners. Its strict monochromatic pallet and down-to-business layout make it hard to argue with. Notably, the home features sliding glass elements from the Swiss manufacturer Victrocsa, sporting a vertical sight line of under an inch, letting light in by the bushel. For more, visit Remodelista.

From architect Fuminori Maemi, a post-tsunami rebuild in Japan's Miyagi prefecture. With a triangular lot and a tight budget, the home not only defies its circumstances, but exudes a warmth and charm sometimes lost in contemporary Japanese architecture. The interior is an intimate space made to feel larger through the horseshoe-shaped footprint, and the slight curvature of the roofline is subtly and indescribably clever. Via designboom.
