Text description provided by the architects. Vietnam-Japan Kindergarten is the perfect combination that adds to the good relationship between Vietnam and Japan, as a testament to the Japanese people’s trust in Vschool’s expertise. A new kindergarten designed and built in Binh Tan, HCMC with the concept of “Indigenous learning and stimulating 5 senses by seeing, touching and feeling”. The architecture of the building is inspired by the blending of two Vietnamese and Japanese cultures such as cherry blossoms, Tatami mats, wood, bamboo and rattan, etc., combining with contributions to the historical and cultural inheritance of the city. This kindergarten and daycare built so that children can see, touch, feel and develop their 5 senses. Moreover, the children also have the opportunity to learn about the history and indigenous culture of Vietnam and Japan.

Vietnam-Japan Kindergarten started as an incubator during the busy days of the city people. The facility built on the campus with trees, designed in an open space that looks out like a picture frame with the views of the areas, and the horizontal and vertical roofs create splashes of color. As the main color, red yellow used for the exterior, matching the color of the close traditions of the two ethnic groups.

In the learning and play area for children of V&J kindergarten, natural wood materials combined with some concrete construction details and green campus help children to see, touch, feel and develop the senses. At the same time, that kind of natural texture in the interiors of kindergartens and kindergartens creates a sense of unity with the school’s architecture.
