MVC to support web clients and GUI clients?

Hello, all,
I am wondering what is the best architecture to support both web clients and GUI clients. I see architecture like:
GUI -> Web Tier MVC -> EJB. (Web Tier MVC is on server side)
I think it is really awkward to use Gui application client to access the web tier. Why not the following:
GUI -> Gui Tier MVC -> EJB. (GUI Tier MVC is on rich client side)
Any comments?
Best,
Denis

Does it imply we need to develop two seperate prestentation tiers:
one for Web client deployed on the web application server and the other for GUI client deployed on the rich client side?
