From the architects:

This house is the result of the exceptional conditions of the context. It is squeezed between a five story apartment block and a semi classical house with a gabled roof. An abstract wall guarantees privacy towards the neighboring apartment.

The stacking of blocks is an abstract metaphor for the layered composition of the gabled roof house. Bricks for the  facade are used so the house blends in with both surrounding buildings.
