This article seeks to demonstrate the reasons and origin of the presence of architectural sanctum, based on the quality of human-environment relationship. Therefore, for this reason, by qualitative method and analytical-descriptive research method, after explaining the effective principles and approaches in understanding the subject and examining it from the perspective of different approaches, it is analysed in examples that each of them has been effective in some ways in creating real quality in architecture space. The obtained results show how the true and pure quality search in space, which rising from the harmony of architectural sanctums with the human nature's desires, has been converted into plain impressions of privacy in some contemporary approaches and to deep conceptual references related to it in others. Understanding the concept of privacy in architecture and identifying its defining criteria provides a framework for evaluating the qualities of these approaches. Hence, this paper sets out its discussion by answering these questions: "What is privacy, how does it emerge in Iranian architecture, and how do the inhabitants of these spaces respond to it?"
