How functional is this kitchen/butlers pantry design?

Hi All!

This is the kitchen our architect has come up with for our house design.

I had really wanted a glass back splash near the sink, so the sink and counter was added in after the initial design. We also want the cook top to be on the island.

Looking at the design, the set up does not seem functional to me. It seems annoying to have to walk between the butler's pantry and kitchen constantly. For example the dishwasher and refrigerator is in the pantry. It would then make sense to keep the dishes in the pantry near the dishwasher, however, this would be extremely annoying when plating up food.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the set up? Should we have the fridge, dishwasher and ovens in the main kitchen and only use the pantry for; coffee, appliances, etc.?

Appreciate the help :)
