Double Oven in Pantry?

last month

Hello! First time poster so thank you in advance for any help you are willing to give!

We are going to embark on a home addition next spring and are working now to finalize plans with our architect. The way our plans stand now, we have a double oven in the pantry with an induction cooktop in the kitchen vented by the microwave. I am going to have the plans updated to have a custom hood instead, and the microwave on a shelf in the pantry or by the refrigerator, but it made me curious if the heat venting for the double oven in the pantry area will lead to food spoilage or if it would be helpful to keep from heating up the entire house when I run it? Perhaps I should do a slide-in range instead? The area with family room/kitchen/mudroom/laundry will be entirely new space, so any input on the flow or other considerations before we go back to our architect are appreciated! Thanks!
