The station has, as has Porte de Pantin located on the same line, a particular arrangement specific to the stations having served or serving as terminus. It has three lanes and two platforms, the platform on the south side being lateral and the platform on the north side forming an island between two lanes. The walls, located flush with the platform are vertical and the roof of the station is straight without metal panels, unlike other stations.
