Diagonal walls

One of the aspects that I found very interesting from our earlier research was the concept of communal living vs. isolation. Hotels have rooms in very close proximity, yet they still have a sense of privacy. For our Waiheke inspired, city site hotel, we want to keep the open atmosphere of the over all hotel whilst still having a sense of privacy. This communal, open yet private living space also links back to J.B. Ballard's novella, Ultimate City, since the teenagers in the Garden City are sent away to live together. 
Therefore, I have been looking at diagonal walls, which can create privacy without the use of doors. Having diagonal walls in our hotel is something I would like to consider.
Here are some of the designs I have been looking at:
