Atkins recently celebrated the structural topping off of the 32-storey Iris Bay office and retail tower at Business Bay in Dubai. The tower consists of two identical double-curved pixelated shells which are rotated and cantilevered over a four-storey podium.

Underneath the podium there are three levels of basement designed to facilitate underground parking for 920 cars. The distinctive ovoid shape creates areas of negative pressure that draws air through the building and reduces the dependence upon mechanical ventilation for the underground parking area.

Atkins, a British-based engineering and design consultancy, is the largest multidisciplinary consultancy in Europe.
