Examples of roofs with this shape?

Hi all,
I'm new to the forum, so can't post new threads, but since this is a query about a brick building, I thought I'd post it here.
I'm planning a loft extension (of a bog-standard English Victorian brick end of terrace) subject to very strict height controls, and I was considering doing the below with the roof, with the aim of preserving classic looking gable ends, but still getting more usable full height space.
My question is the following: are any of you aware of other buildings with similar roof lines to this? Does it have a name? (The best I could come up with is demi-cuboctahedron, which while descriptive, is unlikely to be what architects call it!)
Thanks in advance,
Best,
Tom

Wow, they don't make buildings like this anymore. Back then, big constructions were actually supposed to be something to remember.

In Spain, brick is a traditional construction material, but also very usual in current construction.

For example: the equivalent of "commieblocks" in Spain are not made of concrete, like Germany, Russia, etc...


Also in modern times, during house bubble, it was the most used material:


Previous examples ar the reason brick in Spain is now linked to, dull, low-quality and cheap constructions:

But we have beautiful examples os brick arquitecture.
First though on it is muslim architecture, most notorious the giralda Tower in Seville:


Late XIX-beginnign of XX century we had the neo-mudejar architecture (a revival of moorish-esque style):
Las Ventas bullring (Madrid):

Post Office (Zaragoza):


And some new interesting buildings like Roman National Museum in Mérida:

I don't know about others but I like brick architecture. In fact I've planned to make my house structure in similar fashion.
