Discover us


Welcome to BELLHAUS Atelier & Galerie, where beauty and creativity converge in the heart of the historic Grüner Kranz complex on Bell Street, Windhoek.

Crafted by the visionaries Marcii Magson and Andrea Behnsen, our Atelier & Galerie isn't just a space; it's a living, breathing celebration of artistic expression. Here, artists and art enthusiasts alike are not only welcomed but encouraged to immerse themselves in an environment that fosters inspiration, sparks meaningful conversations, and serves as a sanctuary for the soul and senses.

At BELLHAUS, we embrace the power of art without any airs of pretense or exclusivity. Our mission is simple yet profound: to champion aesthetic awareness and the therapeutic influence of art, both for the creator and the admirer, across all its diverse forms.

Steeped in history, the BELLHAUS, erected in 1906, once served as the home and atelier of the late Namibian landscape maestro, Herbert Diener. Born in Grootfontein in 1914, Diener dedicated his life to capturing the essence, or as he eloquently put it, "the mood," of the Namibian landscape with his watercolor brush.

Now, over a century later, Diener's legacy lives on as the BELLHAUS has been meticulously restored to provide a haven for art and beauty enthusiasts to nurture their own inspirations.

As a patron of the BELLHAUS Atelier & Galerie, you're invited to revel in contemporary exhibitions that showcase the best of Namibian and international visual art and design. From captivating displays to heartwarming creations, we curate experiences that please both the eye and the heart.

So, won't you step inside, make yourself at home, and join us in befriending the muses? Let the BELLHAUS Atelier & Galerie remind you of the essence of existence and what truly makes us feel alive. Your journey into the realms of beauty and inspiration begins here.
