This project which consists of 20 houses on a back-land site in Ranelagh for Seabren Development. The project received final planning approval from An Bord Pleanala in December 2019. A key objective to Metropolitan Workshop’s design was to create two house types, each with independent variances which respond to the restrictions and peculiarities of the site.

"Annesley Gardens demonstrates how carefully modelled schemes can bring forward characterful places on backland urban sites. Increasing densities close to existing services and transport links delivers on the government’s aspiration to build 40% of new homes within the built-up footprint of existing settlements"
