'Declerck-Daels Architecten' recently designed a dental office that is covered in silvery timber cladding. For many people, going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience. This dental office features a welcoming design that is intended to put patients at ease.

The house is located in Bruges, Belgium, and it is named '50 Shades of Wood' due to the many tones visible in the silvery timber cladding. The structure itself features a pitched-volume roof, which gives the building an angular design. One wall is outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows while the other is decorated with vibrant orange graphics. The interior mimics the same inviting design with brightly colored wood throughout. The unique features contribute to a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

The building demonstrates that modern architecture is not limited to residential buildings.
