PACK functions as a strengthening ecological connection between the IJpromenade and the Noorderpark. The gardens and roofs integrate as part of the green lung of Amsterdam Noord. 

When designing this building the goal was to not only create a building for the people of Amsterdam Noord, but also to make a green connection with the neighborhood, using planting that matches the Van der Pek-neighborhood street names (such as Varenweg, Meidoornweg & Sleutelbloemstraat).
