Beauty World is an underground Mass Rapid Transit Station on the Downtown Line located along Upper Bukit Timah road, off Jalan Jurong Kechil. The entrance sits on the site like a chiseled rock outcrop, its design inspired by the geographical context and terrain of the nearby Bukit Timah Hill. The facades are designed as two opaque slanting solid stone walls, featuring sweeping lines and angled surfaces. The use of glass brings natural light into the entrance structure.

The exterior context is translated to the interior; materials for both the exterior and interior finishes are chosen from a consistent palette, using a combination of stone, glass and metal for a durable, vandal-resistant design. The interior design breaks the feel of a long and continuous space by incorporating sweeping curved patterns on the floor and stone-clad walls.
