The glass-wrapped two-storey building houses an underground public garage and 16 bus platforms. Buses arrive via checkpoints, while passengers come through the station building.

The wavy roof affords cover throughout the terminal, which gives users a feeling of sailing on long, low waves. The underground garage, ground floor, the staircase core, and even the beams are fortified with reinforced concrete. Steel trusses running both ways prop up the huge block of roof.
