Design

The station has a different style of architecture from other stations on the eastern part of the East West Line. Instead, it is designed with a traditional Malay roof structure (Atap Minangkabau) and shape similar to the ones used in the Western part of East-West Line (Chinese Garden to Boon Lay stations), and the northern part of North South Line (Bukit Batok to Khatib stations), but used modern materials such as steel beams, similar to that of the Eunos Bus Interchange. This is to provide a sense of identity to the area, as Eunos bus interchange lies close to Geylang Serai and the Malay Village. And also to honour and named the station after an early Malay pioneer Muhammad Eunos bin Abdullah whom secured 700-hectares of land for Malay settlements in the area called Jalan Eunos Malay Settlement (Kampung Melayu), an area spanned from Kallang, Kampong Wak Tanjong to Kembangan and from Kaki Buki to East Coast (sea). The station colour is blue.

Platform screen doors

As with most of the above-ground stations along the East West Line, it was built without platform screen doors to prevent commuters from falling onto the train tracks. The installation of half-height platform screen doors started on 5 October 2010 and operations started on 16 December 2010.

High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans

Station is installed with MJ Air Tech High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Pro-Jet fans and started operations on 11 September 2012 together with Queenstown.
