It depends on the context.
> If you are a data consumer, and are making a list of all addresses in a
town, then the addr:housenumber + addr:street is your object, and
building=yes is your attribute that says "there is a building at this
address". If you are making a list of all buildings, then it's the other
way around. If you are making a list of restaurants, then the
amenity=restaurant is your object, with attributes building and address.
