The façade of the building is inspired by the theme of Charminar, which is applied to the main building only. The rest of the buildings such as the Retiring rooms/Passenger reservation system, restaurant and MMTS entry (a separate building) are treated with a modern style of architecture. These are renovated using a neutral and sober color palette. The facades are designed with straight lines to give elegance to the structure as well as enhance functionality and accessibility.
In addition, the Master plan and station design will integrate and enhance the surrounding street patterns, traffic movements and buildings. One of the key aspects of the master plan will be to clearly define the interfaces between the station and the city. Another characteristic emphasised is the height of the through roofs. This elongated height between the floor and the roof makes the facade gain stature.
The spaces are designed using passive strategies to ensure ample natural light in the structure and promote sustainability.
