That is a different way to do things for sure.

the rain doesn't get in because the vents are angled inside when the water goes in its simply runs back out due to gravity we do the same way here to old school also when i slate the other side all my vents will line up with each other this is what will create the draft as if its a machine doing it. like when you open a front and back door in a house also old school this way we get the air to circulate in like a circular motion.As i say in the post its major over kill for ventilation we even have breathable felt and vented soffit but that's what the architect has specified in his drawings we tried explaining its ott but once the plans are in its kind of set in stone plus that small roof is a dentist so probs lots of chemicals etc thinking on it it probably needs that good airflow

What we would do in that situation is to vent it at the soffit instead of on the roof. That is dangerous because you don't want air going "in" on the roof. From beneath it fine, but any vent wants to exhaust air and not intake it. I have built a "cold roof" over en existing roof many times and vented the bottom (beneath the eave) and then installed a ridge vent at the top. It makes many "small" attics but does a nice job.

i have to put in a vent in between every rafter where possible at eaves and at ridge this with provide airflow so the air circulates in the loft overkill to be honest but that's whats on the drawings
