Noyes is a Purple Line Station with a single island platform that can accommodate 8 cars and has a canopy for its entire length. On the platform are little some murals (similar to those at Foster), and a few windscreens. A portion of the simple old white canopy was being replaced when I visited the station letting the sky shine in through its medal framing. The station exit is at the extreme northern end of the platform where there are just two turnstiles inside a tiny station house with floor to ceiling plexiglass walls. Just beyond the turnstiles is the white cashier's booth. A FVM is just beyond it and a coke machine. There is then a single enclosed staircase (with plexiglass windows in places) to an intermediate landing that switchbacks and two parallel staircases down to a little plaza a bit just north of Noyes Street. There is definitely room for a full station house in this area between the street and staircases up to the platform.
