But looking at the street, & the way it's numbered, it shows as 2, 4, 6, 8,
10, this place, 16, 18, 20, 22 ...

Assuming all those numbers actually appear?, personally, I would have
mapped it as
addr:unit / flats (whatever the default is in Belgium?)=1A;2A;3A

By your photo, it looks like you could even put a building name in as
well "*Den
Oude Post*"!
