Sliding door looking out into the backyard - necessity?

I understand the reasoning behind sliding doors looking into the backyard if it faces north or there is a pretty view. However, this is not always the case. And my question applies to those scenarios when the backyard is very small and south facing for example.

would you ever consider building a house where there isn’t a sliding door in the open space living area (kitchen, dining, lounge) that faces the backyard?
