Francois "Fran" Beauregard
Beauregard Residential Design

I am a residential designer, an illustrator, and an architect of all kinds of traditional buildings, both "real" structures like luxury private homes and imaginary, for games and novels. I also build quite a lot of things, shelves, furniture, cabinets, architectural components, and interior renovations. I am completely self-taught. Unlike the majority of architectural designers now, I rely exclusively on pencil and paper to express a new building design. Virtually all my floor plans, elevations, cross sections, and three-dimensional "perspective" portraits of buildings are hand-drawn. I am also a huge proponent of "traditional" architecture. Those buildings which have stood the test of time are exceedingly beautiful, timelessly enduring, profoundly well-built and highly functional, and they are where my inspirations and construction techniques come from.

I DO accept commissions to design buildings of all forms and types, both fantasy and real, including fantastic houses, spectacular castles, detailed villages, and more, in any historic style of your choice, or, I can invent a new style! I have received a number of commissions from Deviant in the last few months, including real architectural work, website illustrations for a builder, novel illustrations, virtual building designs for games, and a book cover for a novel, and the commission requests continue.

Viewers of my drawings and designs may learn from them, be inspired by them, or use them as a basis for something more involved. I am not possessive and share freely. If you would like to make a 3D model or other artwork based on something in my gallery, feel free, I love seeing how other people interpret what I draw. Just be sure to send me a note during progress or when you are done, and credit me as the designer, that's all!

Also, if you are interested in watercolors, digital art, and drawings of traditional architecture, both existing historic structures and original designs of all kinds, be sure to check out my group, Classic-Architecture!

Garage Addition in Progress, Foundation by Built4ever
Garage Addition in Progress, Foundation
New three-car garage being added, house also being renovated. Foundation done, now we wait for concrete slab pour, then we frame it. I drew the plans earlier this year, being built by a local quality-oriented builder nearby here in Greenville, SC area. For those of you in other countries, this is a good lesson on an American residential construction techniques. More photos coming in a week or so as we move forward.

Una Calesa by Built4ever
Una Calesa
Original design for a calesa, a small horse-drawn carriage found in historic zones of the Philippines. Many different minor variations, including somber color palettes like black paint with stained wood and some with very bright colors. Best ones have swooping gracefully curved rooflines and rear carriage cab over the axle. Front and rear panels often embellished with carved wood and decoration. Drawn by small horses or mules. My version is probably a bit bigger than usual with large wheels.

House 401 A Prarie Style Home by Built4ever
House 401 A Prarie Style Home
Not my normal style,this one's just a little different, and hopefully, just what the clients asked for. Funded and waiting for plans approval by city, then construction starts, should be underway by April. Exterior is mild prarie style/modern, simple arrangement, modern window muntin pattern, semi-open floor plan.

Hey!

If you dont have anything against it I would like to affiliate our groups.

arsmilitaria.deviantart.com/

My newborn group is specialised on high detailed military illustrations including defense and military architecture (traditional or digital drawings and paintings) and it will host only the finest deviations while gathering some of the most talented artists.

I sent the request. You have to confirm it. In fact it would be better to send an affiliation request from your side if you have some voting procedure and some administrators are absent or if the request expires in the meanwhile.

You should also consider to join us.

I just skimmed over your work, and WOW. I'm curious though, do you prefer making digital or traditional architectural designs? :))

I NEVER design digitally, no one should. I sometimes use Sketchup to help design and finish complex roofscapes. Autocad is for final plans only, and ONLY if we go digital, sometimes we use hand drafted plans for final plans.
