I don't think you can compare to being overlooked by other flats or offices, by definition it's a 'viewing platform'. Also, I think Serota's comment about putting up net curtains is just purposely antagonistic.

I don't think the 'overlooking' residents of Neo (or Mordor on Thames as you'd have it) do is quite on the same level as this, is it?
