How should I lay out my office?

I am moving into a new house and trying to figure out the best way to lay out the office. I am planning on getting custom built-ins. My goals are as follows:

Must Have:

1. Have a nice background for regular video conferences/meetings. I don't like to see any doors in the background. I also have concerns about the window in the background since it may wash out the video and our view is nothing special.

Nice to have:

1. Seating area

2. If this could be a flexible guest room, that would be great. Either with a built in murphy bed or pull-out couch. Last resort would just be to have enough floor space for a blow-up air mattress. We already have another guest room and this would be used at most once a year when the entire family stays over.
