The first step of the Ikast-Brande Municipal Council's visionary plan Vision Vestergade is now taken with the new ‘heart’ of Ikast that is a major expansion of the International School Ikast-Brande. The expansion will be a meeting point where relationships between various societal and age groups can be formed and maintained. The buildings and outdoor areas are created to promote inclusive and integrative social and cultural meetings and gatherings.
The expansion has sports halls with multi-functional and educational facilities, economic work opportunities including, for example cafés and office facilities. The project will make the educational facilities at the school even better, and at the same time create a new meeting point centred round an area of fast growth in Ikast. The ‘heart’ will be surrounded by a band of activities with a rich multitude for the community, exercise and recreational pursuits.
