Do you have a alternative suggestion? It's on purpose that I left the
name of the relation a bit vague, so that one could expand it later
with other roles besides the two (address and entrance) that I came
now up with.

Sure, this is not basic level mapping but it builds on existing
objects. And as people do more and more micro-mapping this would be a
suggestion for how to do it.
