Vidhave on Gotland

The housing cooperative Skogsnyckeln is part of a new climate-smart destination on the island of Gotland. In their 22 Nordic eco-labelled wooden houses, the Orbital Shower is an integral part.

Vidhave is the new name for the seaside area outside Visby where Snäck Camping was previously located. The area is beautifully located among Gotland pines and the 22 eco-certified wooden houses all have views of the sea. Nova Nature Group, the company that built the houses, has chosen a different path in terms of operation, which gives each homeowner greater opportunities to influence their own energy and water consumption. All the houses have been equipped with the market's first circular shower solution - Orbital Shower.

Incentives for sustainability

The members of of the housing cooperative are responsible for their own costs for indoor climate and water. This creates incentives for conscious and sustainable ownership.

"We are developing the place to welcome environmentally conscious families and individuals who are looking for an active holiday in a beautiful environment. Hotels, spas and additional holiday homes will be built here, all of which will be created with high environmental standards and in harmony with Gotland's nature."

Jens Hjelte, co-owner Nova Nature Group

By installing the Orbital Shower, the owners can save up to 90% of the water consumption and 80% of the energy consumption compared to a normal shower. This is how a sustainable holiday home of the future is created.

The construction of  Skogsnyckeln is only the beginning. With Vidhave, Nova Nature Group wants to create a new culture around vacation homes with minimal environmental footprint, and in the next five years a lot more will happen in this area.
