By John GresslerA house that has fallen into disrepair has been bought for a cool £2m to replace it.
The architect says he has “never been happier to work on something.”
Read moreThe architect is building a new home in a residential area of east London after the demolition of the old house that he and his wife own in the city.
The old house in Hackney, north London, was demolished in May 2016.
The house on the corner of North Kensington and Highgate was demolished because of mould and other issues.
A new house, which will be built on the site, is currently being planned.
Mr Gresslers’ previous home was destroyed when the house he was working on in Hackneys Edge was destroyed by fire in 2014.
“This house is not a luxury, but a house that I’ve been building for a long time,” he said.
“When we first started the project, we were told that this was a house to preserve, and I knew this was going to be the last one that we would be working on for a while.”

The building will be located on the third floor of a five-storey residential building, in the old Hackney Green area.
The original plan was to build on the top floor and create a three-storeys home with a swimming pool, spa and gym.
The new house will be the third in a series of homes he is planning on the property.
Mr Hickey’s home in the Hackneys Green area was destroyed in 2014, and the architect said he was looking to save the property and rebuild it.
“It’s been a real challenge, because of the damage and because of all the issues that have been brought to our attention, but we are very pleased that we’ve been able to secure this one,” he told BBC London.
“And we’re going to use this new home as a starting point to build a lot more of the houses that we want to build.”
Mr Hicsall says he’s still working on the design and will not start work until the end of February.
“We have a very strong, strong team behind us.
It’s a very important part of the whole project, because it’s the only way that we can be able to do this.
We have been working on this house for a year and we’ve worked with a lot of the best architects and we think this is a fantastic project, so I’m very pleased with it,” he added.
