Nils Gustav von Heidenstam (1822 - 2 June 1887) was a Swedish engineer born in Blekinge.
The mid-19th century was a period of intensive lighthouse-building. The work to cover Sweden's coasts with lighthouses was led by lighthouse engineer Gustav von Heidenstam at the Swedish Board of Pilotage. He designed the type of lighthouse of which Pater Noster is an example, which is often called 'Heidenstammare'. Of a total of eleven lighthouses of this type, ten still remain.
