Building with two different names. How to solve

I have came across this a few time, also buildings in one street with the entrance from another street, I would tag the building as the Palazzo Pamphilji and the embassy as an Address node in this building, as an entrance. access=public entrance=door addr:housename=Brazillian Embassy this can even be in the buildings outline to show exactly where their door is. even can add wheelchair=yes/ or no
