In the Artemis Fowl film, Haven City is depicted as a marvel of modern technology. Large monitors display news-feeds, including the news of the theft of the Aculos, an artifact that normally rests at the heart of Haven City and is considered the source of fairy magic. The Haven City Express and other air-shuttles flew throughout the city, providing easy transit. LEPRecon forces monitored any attempt to leave for the surface, ensuring the secret existence of the fairy people remained secret.
In the behind-the-scenes featurette "Creating the World," Haven City is described as being a "big, huge, hi-tech, exciting advanced civilization" which nevertheless has an organic feel like a very natural people have lived there for a long time. Despite having technology, they have not abandoned Mother Earth. The art department had a double vision between architecturally pure and magically inventive, described as an "underground, wacky Shangri-la" and also as being a deep ocean without the water. The fairies escaped to it as a natural world to escape the horror of what the humans had done on the surface.
