layout controller but how can an administator controller be build in a
restful way? Do you make all your controllers restful or only a

what resource your 'administrator controller' revolves around?

It will use the User, Structure and Layout resource. They all have
their own restfull controller but I also want to centralize them in an
administrator view

I think if you need kind of dashboard, aggregating info for different
resources it's ok to have unrestful controller, but all operations on
specific resource should go to corresponding controller.
