The design is inspired by the underground world of Chinese landscape, incorporating the symbolism of rocks and caves with their complex system of "worlds within worlds". Elena Galli Giallini also takes reference from the natural landscape of stone forests, such as Shilin in Yunnan.

For the terrain, it features a labyrinth of giant lime-stones, similar to an enormous forest filled with unique stone columns.

The escalator lobbies are metaphors for caves and made from 20 different types of pre-fabricated panels filled with granite and lava-stone rods. The ceiling of the arcade is adorned with holes and protrusions that incorporate lighting and interchangeable signage systems.
