adding covered porch to a 1-story flat roof building

we have been living in a one-story flat roof house/apartment for the past 8 years. We have a covered porch on the back of the house, but it looks like a "shanty" porch and I would like something new and appealing. My husband does not know what type of roof line would be appropriate for this new porch since it will be connected to a flat roof. Any suggestions? Any images I could look at to get some ideas?? Thanks.

To me it's obivious a flat roof over the porch would be the simplest and logical in terms of matching the existing line.

the height of the existing plays a big part in what type of roof to go with
