The architecture of Haussmann–Saint-Lazare closely resembles that of Magenta. Following the earlier model of Charles de Gaulle–Étoile, its main train hall houses two lines under a single cathedral-like vault with lateral platforms. As at Magenta, the hall is supplemented by an additional two "half-stations" on either side, each with one platform.
A "cathedral station", Haussmann–Saint-Lazare is remarkable for its relatively lavish proportions. A long term project to extend the Line E to the west, forming a new cross-Paris axis, was approved in February 2011.
The station's construction cost was €275 million.:162
