Two of the station's lobbies are located on Admiral Ushakov parkway and on Skovelev street. In the centre of the platform there are enclosed escalators and a lift for disabled access to the station.

The design of Ulitsa Skobelevskaya station is simple and almost identical to the other stations of the Butovskaya Line (except for Ulitsa Starokachalovskaya, which is underground). It is located on an elevated viaduct with a light green and curvy canopy stretching over the entire platform. There are large sound and wind barriers on either side of the platform. The single island platform itself is 90m (295 feet) long, 7m (22 feet) wide, and 9.6 (31 feet) above the ground.
