Theory and Criticism
 
privacy in Iranian traditional houses
one of the charactristics of Iranian traditional houses is achieving to the highest level of privacy. they were inwardly oriented and all activities were happened withouth undue encroachment of strangers. can we still design houses and spacially apartments that provide the highest level of privacy?

of course you can. it is just the matter of having patient, and love challenge. nowadays, most of architects have no time to deal with innovations and or ignore to devote extra-time to design better. so, they copy and redo. have seen the landscape magazine of September issue..there is very good critique about how we used to design.
good luck with your design

Fatemeh, Furthermore, in the apartment block, there were two apartments on each floor which in effect were back to back with solid walls facing inwards (note: the traditional toilet and bathroom had an enclosed internal ventilation shaft). The balconies faced outwards with no direct view of the other apartment, one balcony for the main bedroom, one balcony for the guest bedroom and one balcony shared by the kitchen and lounge with an oven and chimney built into the corner.

Fatemeh, Today in Turkey, apartments are designed and built to cater for the cultural tradition of privacy.

For example, one apartment I know of had a right angled hallway. The front door opened into the short hallway with doors to the kitchen, lounge, guest bedroom and traditional toilet.

Then there was a dividing door which closed off the end of the hallway for the bathroom and two bedrooms.
