WHIM architecture produces a modern, whimsical, sculptural architecture within its wider context.

WHIM architecture (originally named as Bateman Architecture) is an international

architecture firm, set up in Rotterdam (NL) by Ramon Knoester in 2004.

The work is a combination of design and research.


Dimensioning and relations between programmatic elements is essential to the

practice. Each building design results in a unique sculpture; a carefully studied

form generated by these interrelations. Further, in realizing the built form, these

conceptual elements are fully refined into the detail.


Where society changes, architecture should adapt. Much time is invested in

researching this manifesto on how society changes and on how to react on it by

architecture. And also, on the way in which this adapting architecture can feedback

into the society that created it.

WHIM architecture is a collaborative practice working together with engineering

and construction offices, with financial experts and with foreign architects to achieve

the best quality in our buildings as in our research.
