The building was originally a garage for boats of the local fire department and has been adapted and used as a venue for concerts and theatre. The OTTO Kulturgenossenschaft runs and develops Alter Bauhof as a participatory project (www.otto-kulturgenossenschaft.at), whereas the municipality of Ottensheim is providing the builing. It is acoustically quite open, there is a walkway and a park nearby. Alongside the main room with the stage and the bar there is a backstage area, a workshop with storage, a lobby with a permanent exhibition area and a backyard.
