Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station is an integrated transportation hub that caters for various modes of rail transport. It includes KTMB Intercity and Commuter services, Putra LRT services and Express Rail Link (ERL) services. The station is the integral part of the overall KL Sentral development.

Crowning the complex is a waved-like roof. The suspended domes and granite flooring patterns poetically express the fusion of modern technology with Islamic architecture. The feature also enriches the high-tech structural steelworks of the station. Spanning the East-West axis of the station, the sweeping waved roofs reflect the directional flow and motion of the railway tracks below.

The overall precinct masterplan and the integrated transport hub were undertaken in collaboration with Kisho Kurokawa Architects & Associates.
