I don't believe any of the methods available in the layout function for graph and digraph objects will give you that exact configuration. When you plot the graph or digraph object, you can explicitly specify the X, Y, and (if desired) Z coordinates of the nodes. See the "Custom Graph Node Coordinates" example on the plot documentation page I linked above or this post on Loren's blog which uses the centroid of each US state as the coordinate of its node in the plot of the US.
