Lefuel, Hector-Martin (1810–80). French architect, he succeeded L. Visconti as architect of the Louvre and Tuileries (1854–80), where he was assisted by R. M. Hunt. His tall mansard roofs and rich (even excessive) Renaissance Revival decorations were the epitome of the Second Empire style, and influential. He also designed the theatre at Fontainebleau (1853) in an C18 style, and the buildings for the 1855 Paris International Exhibition.
