Rooftop Bathroom: Would You? Could You?!

When I first saw this photo in Vogue Living, I thought, "Oh, yes please!". But then I noticed how close those other buildings are. And then I saw the toilet...According to Vogue Living writer Madeleine Hinchy, the bathroom's glorious 360-degree views of Tokyo don't create any issues for its users: "The neighbouring buildings are lower in height, but a white shower curtain offers extra privacy." However, in the photo you can see across to the neighbors' patios, which means they can see in. And there's certainly no white curtain around the toilet. Don't get me wrong: I think this project is gorgeous, and I'm super-jealous of the bath, shower, plants, and natural light. But the toilet...

Thoughts?
