This is a perfect example of a residential galley kitchen. The sink is on the opposite wall but still maintains the tight work triangle. It's likely that there's a kitchen table near where the photographer was standing. Adding a kitchen table would be another way that the galley kitchen can be modified to meet the needs of a modern family.
This galley-style kitchen has the cooktop and prep sink in a large island, which is great for two cooks. I love the wall of windows.
Typically people think of a galley kitchen as two parallel lines of base and wall cabinets, but I see the kitchen with an island and parallel wall as a modern interpretation of the classic galley kitchen. This kitchen has the main sink in the island and the range and refrigerator on the main wall, making for a really tight work triangle.
If you don't have a lot of room, putting your main sink in the island can be a great option. Even better if it's a farm sink, which gives you an extra 3 inches in back of the faucet due to the sink being pulled forward (rather than having the 3-inch strip of stone required for the front of standard undermount sink).
Here's another loose interpretation of the galley kitchen, since there appears to be base cabinets on the right foreground. But the sink, range and refrigerator are all on one wall, so it made the cut.
