Big brother is definitely watching: ad tracking, drones, location services, CCTV… it seems that privacy has become a much sought-after feature these days.  

However, let’s not forget that one’s house is sacred and private, and we all have the right to enjoy as much solitude (and safety) at home as we want. It is the one space that should allow us to break away from the crowded world without having to worry about who’s watching us.

On that note, let’s take a look at 12 ultra modern homes who clearly feel the same, as they treat their owners to closed-off façades that are perfect for privacy.

1. Some generous wooden panelling to add both privacy and shade

2. A solid front volume with windows located at the back (and high up)

4. A modern stone wall (and garden plants) that shields the downstairs windows

6. These small windows are perfect for enhancing some privacy

5. Nosey neighbours? This no-windows façade knows the secret

7. Strategically placed trees help with both privacy and a delightful front yard
