The architectural design of Marymount station is similar to other CCL3 stations Bartley and Lorong Chuan.

Marymount station has two platforms in an island platform arrangement. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel environment, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort. A set of escalators, stairs and a lift connects the platform level to the concourse level one floor above. With the concourse wrapping around the platform, a large interior space is created around the middle of the platform, giving the impression of spaciousness.
Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits.
The station concourse at Basement 1 feature faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the benefit of passengers-in-wheelchairs and those carrying bulky items or travelling with prams. An unpaid walkway runs through the concourse, allowing pedestrians to commute between station exits without having to enter the paid areas of the rail network. As such, faregates are located both at the escalator / staircase landing, and the lift landing.
General Ticketing Machines allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and along with Top-up Machines, offer contactless card transactions. The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre, and is staffed during operating hours, where commuters may make travel inquiries.
Art in Transit: “Superstring” by Joshua Yang
The work consists of a series of single continuous line drawings where the line neither overlaps nor breaks. The drawing of the art wall, with the dimensions of gaps and positions of bolts. The artist aims to bring out the inconsistencies between the planned construction and the final wall which the viewer is facing. The drawing surrounding the ticket machines allows the viewer to see through the glass and the structures behind. In some ways it is a parody of the age-old technique of single point perspective drawing to create an imagined three-dimensional space; here the three-dimensional space is compressed with a single, continuous line so that the viewer becomes aware of the fourth dimension: Time.
