Is extraction fan in kitchen chimney needed?

last month

We’re renovating our kitchen and our chimney will remain. We would replace tiles. See current photo (the ‘new world’ oven is circa 1960!). We’re considering 2 options for use of the chimney space and would appreciate advice:

  1. Add a new oven/cooktop to the space. Would this be ok with no extraction fan and venting through chimney?
  2. Converting the chimney space to an appliance area, with drawers below bench and microwave (or other appliances on top). Thoughts?
