This page identifies one yacht-builder's philosophy of their pilothouse concept:

On our boat, forward visibility is excellent, due to the full height aft cabin which raises the sight lines from the aft deck helm above the pilothouse roof. The negative effect of this however, is an increase in moment since we are higher off the water line when sailing from the aft helm.
