International School Ikast-Brande

The international school in Ikast-Brande is so popular that it had to be expanded with new facilities. C.F. Møller has designed the complex like a small town with individual volumes located around a square and winding streets.

Landscape

C.F. Møller Landscape

The new building, located as an addition to an existing educational complex, includes a school, after-school and kindergarten.

Inside the two-storey building of light brickwork, there are omnipresent views to the green landscape and a pleasant natural light influx, creating a bright and friendly environment for the children and staff. The window openings are placed in a pixelated and lively pattern that allows natural light deep into the rooms - and opens the views for big and small alike.

Centrally located in the school complex is a long superstructure with a curved form. The superstructure contains ventilation systems and skylights, and is clad in translucent facade panels and double-glazed windows, respectively. The curved form is continued in the sinuous balconies framing the central square, which acts as a multi-purpose space for drama, music, dining and lectures as well as the main social space.

The surrounding park-like landscape is partially designed as shady woodlands, with embedded playgrounds and playing fields, and a smaller screened area for the kindergarten.
