How lo lower a doghouse profile

I'm the proud owner of an Alpa 9, a 1967 Illingworth designed 30 foot sloop.
I love my sailboat, the only question is that I really dislike her doghouse, I find it too high.
Here're some picture of my sailboat:
Fulvia III ‎(Alpa A9‎)

I'm looking for some ideas to lower the appareance of my doghouse. Anybody has any idea?
SOme toughts: insert s wooden strip on the cabin side, change the stanchoins with other higher, raise the gunwale...but I'm pretty in doubt about the final effect.

Thank you to everybody!
