This roof has been converted from a hip roof to a gable end roof. This increases the internal space substantially. This method of extending a roof increases the design possibilities.

For example on a semi detached house you could accommodate 2 bedrooms and a bathroom in the loft conversion.

It can also include a box dormer on the rear of the property.
