The new station features a sculptural roof that lends it a distinctive appearance but maintains a connection to the human scale. A long viaduct leads trams to the station over 12 meters above ground level, the slender design reducing its impact on the surroundings – particularly the Bezuidenhout-West residential district.

The steel construction enables spans of 35 meters between the pillars, which maintains unobstructed views at ground level and allows the project to subtly blend into the existing urban fabric. The canopy provides protection for passengers walking between the HSE departure station and the main hall of The Hague Central Station.
