models for this colony can be found in the ancient Roman architecture.
The slim building lies parallel to the beach and is characterized by an
arcade on the ground level. This arcade is flanked by two tower like buildings,
which let the colony look as the Basilica Aemilia in Rome. The parts at
the end contain the rooms for the leaders and the kitchen. Apparently
in later years a second similar wing was added in the south, which is
also formed by an arcade and another corner building. In the upper floors
the arcade gives space for a long terrace for sun therapy which balusters
are decorated by antique vases. Behind those terraces lay the dormitories.
