Master builder Christof Haberland (1750–1803) was Latvia’s leading architect during the period of historical styles. He contributed to Riga’s blossoming into a modern city, following the trends of the Enlightenment.

Christof Haberland introduced a method of geometric proportioning, which he combined with Classical-style façades. For the most part, Haberland constructed apartment buildings for the residents of the city, though he also built the Riga City Library, Otto Hermann von Vietinghoff’s theatre, a police administration building, a Freemason’s lodge, and reconstructed the Town Hall and the House of Blackheads. Haberland also designed a pulpit for St. Peter’s Church, as well as six churches and several manor houses in Latvia and Estonia.
