SkyWatch: Jeddah Villa Neighbor

Privacy is a major concern in Saudi Arabia, hence the high walls around every villa.  I doubt that the owner of this villa is happy about the highrise building being built right next door. 

To  visit MORE friendly skies around the world, fly on over to SKYWATCH  where you’ll find beautiful skies posted by bloggers all over the world.

Quite a contrast in architecture!

Would the high rise not eliminate the privacy of the garden, and thus, eliminate the ability of the women in the family to use it?

Hi Anonymous - Absolutely. Many villa walls have large slatted extensions to afford more privacy above and beyond the wall height. However the owner of this villa might have to eventually build overhead shades so the women of the house would be able to still use the outside area.
