In our kitchen design we have room for 1 appliance tower where the smeg oven and microwave will be, with pot drawer underneath and Over Head Cupboards above. However we are also considering getting the matching Smeg coffee machine, except we don't have room anywhere else in the kitchen to have it, so we would need to have all 3 appliances on top of eachother, most likely coffee machine on top, then oven in middle and then microwave/griller at the bottom.
The negative to this is we essentially lose our bottom pot drawer, however we aren't too fussed with that. However I'm also a bit worried about the fact the microwave will be quite low. Usually in the marketing and display pics and display homes, they have appliances next to eachother in side by side config, however we don't have the room to this as we dont want to sacrifice benchspace.
Has anyone seen this done much before? Here's a pic from an old Smeg catalogue that shows what I mean

Can you move the microwave away from the oven stack? Possibly somewhere under the bench. With three appliances stacked, the top unit will be quite high putting users at risk of spilling hot liquids/food on themselves.

Built-in appliance branded coffee machines (even the best ones eg Miele) are generally never as good as specialised ones.
What makes sense to have in your appliance tower is a steamer oven (which can also be sometimes combined with oven function) and a warmer drawer (e.g. under the oven).
Also, FYI Neff makes ovens which can also work as microwaves, I am quite sure some other vendors do the same too.

We side by side ovens at a perfect height and microwave built in just under island which is very user friendly and convenient with bench just where you need it, problem with that set up of four is the top are two high and you do spill food and drink from coffee machine and microwave as my sister's house constantly does with that set up,I also find my Jura coffee machine which sits on my bench against wall kills my sister's built in Miele coffee machine with jura machine making froth so much cremier

You have paid for a new kitchen, not a touched up one. Ask them to re do the damaged panels and correct their poor workmanship. This should not be too hard for them.
