window behind stove

I am designing european style kitchen. I want to place window behind cook top. HO is aware of cleaning issues and it's ok with it. Kitchen is facing the street and placing the window elsewhere will create unpleasant look from both sides. I can find pictures on web, but can't find if it's code approved. I want to have some info in my hand before I ask at building department, they have tendency dismiss if they do not know....
We are ok with metal window.

I know of no code restriction against having a window over your cook stove, Michal. Not likely to be approved as a required egress if that's a consideration in your design.

I'd expect them to be more likely to gig you for having a metal framed window unless it's a thermally broken metal frame. And it will need to comply with all the other environmental glazing requirements these days, 'specially in your State.

The only real source for the specific information you need will be your code compliance jurisdiction, of course. But you knew that.

What makes a kitchen "european style?"

CX, egress doesn't apply in kitchen I think.....

All windows through house will be replaced with clad windows with wood inside, I am not sure city will let me install anything combustible behind cooktop, resp. not sure if wooden frame will be considered combustible. So we are ready to "offer" metal windows.

european kitchen - it's kitchen with upper cabinets of same depth as base cabinets. I am not sure if that's common name through us, probably just local slang.

Shouldn't apply, Michal, I agree.

As for combustible material, we frequently bracket the stove with wooden cabinets above and wood-framed drywall behind and particleboard countertops directly on either side. I've never been asked to put a window behind the cook stove, but I don't see why you couldn't. Biggest negative I see, aside from the cleaning aspect, would be the inability to have a properly installed vent hood of any kind.

More commonly we don't even have the stove against an exterior wall, though. Curious to see your layout for that kitchen.

As for the term European Kitchen, I'm just not familiar. Thought maybe it had some sort of definite style.

I recall I installed several ovens/hoods on exterior wall, don't remember any issue with it. What's your concern?
The window will be of size to fit between countertop and upper cabinet, will not be behind the hood. Something like on pic.
I plan to vent the hood up through the roof.
