Symbiotic Hot Tub

A symbiotic hot tub that uses the minerals and nutrients secreted by the human body to support a culture of edible plants and animals that in turn clean the water for a warm relaxing bath in the woods. Situated in rural Gotland as part of the larger 'Designers on Holiday' site the project is currently only fifty percent constructed with the completetion due for summer 2016. When complete the system will consist of two pools, one the hot tub pool for humans which will be connected via solar powered pumps to a separate cleaning pool where the plants and animals will live. The hot tub is powered by a submersible wood fired stove.
