[Photos] Inside District 1's Coolest Kindergarten

Hidden down a quiet street in District 1's Tan Dinh Ward, Chuon Chuon Kim is one cool kindergarten.

The converted townhouse, which now welcomes Saigon's littlest learners, was brought to life by local architecture firm Kien Truc O, reports ArchDaily.

Within the private kindergarten, Kien Truc O plays on the multi-purpose needs of the kindergarten, allowing for spaces to shift from small to large and vice versa. The architects also took into consideration the fact that young kids tend to feel more comfortable in spaces which suit their size, installing mini furniture in several areas throughout the larger room. This, the architects say, encourages kids to explore beyond their personal bubble while still ensuring that they feel comfortable in the space they're in.

Take a tour of the school below:
