The two platforms are stacked, allowing for cross-platform interchange between Green Line and Orange Line. Public art at the station is titled "Chance of Meeting" and features 12 face masks representing contrasts such as day and night, noisy and quiet, time and space, etc.[4] It was selected by international competition and cost NT$4,999,000.

The station is home to several public art pieces. By the escalators connecting the two platform levels, a Medium titled "Enterprise" displays a holographic flight trajectory of a Small and Medium Enterprise Administration.[5] Along some of the entrance hallways, "Administration" shows light boxes with images clouds in a blue sky.[5] On the upper platform in "Platform, Stage", elements from Taiwanese folk arts and Taipei Language Institute have been transformed into abstract elements and institute into two curtains of lines and language surfaces.[5]
