alright if window is in wall but otherwise all prep and cooking is anti social and boring.

Some of us don't have the luxury of space to have more than 1 wall of kitchen! We cut our coat....

Im not sure about all the complaints about looking at a wall - the only way this would not be the case in any kitchen of any configuration is if all the appliances and work space were on an island facing the living area. No thanks, I don't want my guests to be faced with the detritus of meal prep and/or cleanup. Even worse of course would be the modern Must Have butlers pantry where you are well and truely shut away from the action!

Downsizing to a beach house on Bruny Island, TAS, we built a single wall kitchen. Very happy with the choice. Fitted in all appliances and plenty of drawer storage. I had thought about a movable island, but found it isn't needed after all. The shelves are a removable unit in case in the future we upgrade to a larger fridge. Although this house is about less, not more!
