Alternative to range hood over island slide in range

Please help.

I'm about ready to tear my hair out, trying to plan my kitchen reno. The best place for the range is in the island, but I refuse to hang a range hood over it as it will obstruct the view of the window from the living room. The pop up hoods are outrageously expensive and can't be used with a range, only a cooktop. My idea is to place a grate in the 8" little divider area between my work surface and the bar height eating area of the island. (see drawing) I could either install a recirculating carbon filtered fan, or vent it to the outside. I can't find any information online about this idea ... I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of it.
