For the last five years the terms at IPC have been fully booked with a hundred students each term. We need new and bigger facilities to accommodate the number of students, and together with the architect company, Urban Powers, we have created a vision for future surroundings at IPC.
We hope to build:
– A big central building with a multifunctional auditorium (room for 150 persons) which connects with the beautiful surrounding nature. Two large class rooms will be located in the building as well.
– An underground base in relation with the auditorium with a music- and party room opening up to the outside area.
– A new student kitchen and lounge area, together with a winter garden and a room for experimental sustainable gardening in an independent area at the school.
The project has sustainability, availability, and connectedness with nature (and the existing buildings) as main priorities in relation with our core values.
The budget is approximately 34 million DKK, and we are able to finance 12 million DKK ourselves.
We recently received ten million DKK from a huge Danish foundation – Den A. P Møllerske Støttefond – and we are thrilled to say that this means that our vision for new buildings at IPC – or at least some of it – will come true and the project will get started.
We still need 12 million DKK before we can create the whole vision, and we will continue to seek fonds, but for now we are just happy to say that IPC will grow for sure – one way or the other.
We hope to inaugurate the new buildings in relation with our 100 years anniversary in the autumn 2021.
