Hippolyte Alexandre Gabriel Walter Destailleur (also known as H A G W Destailleur, H A G W Destailleur)

Hippolyte Alexandre Gabriel Walter Destailleur was a Paris-born architect and interior designer active in both mainland Europe and in the UK in the mid- to late-19th century.

He is particularly noted for his number of town and country houses built in the Renaissance revival style, including Waddesdon Manor, near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, built between 1888 and 1890, and for his various mausolea and memorials, such as the priory and mausoleum at Farnborough, Hampshire, England, which Destailleur designed in a flamboyant gothic style between 1887 and 1889.
