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!

Fire Flies
Fantasy pin-up piece, started as a tattoo design but got a little too complicated. Many themes throughout. Pencil on white paper.
House 404 Masonry and Parapet Wall by Built4ever
House 404 Masonry and Parapet Wall
Parapet walls are relatively rare in modern residential construction. Essential to execute the roof to wall detail properly with good quality flashing. Done well you end up with beautiful proportions, nice detailing. There were also challenges in executing the corbeled out portions of the upper wall.

House In Greenville, Renovations, Exterior Concept
Been very very busy, so sorry for not posting for a while. Here's an example of a type of renovation that I'm doing several of here in my hometown, adding a second floor to a one-story house. I start with a concept sketch like this, but in my mind, I have already "roughed-out" a floor plan for the new stairs and at least 3, maybe 4 bedrooms and two baths upstairs. My intention is that, by the time my builder and renovation team is finished, the client will have the best house on the block.
