This is a good solution. I usually resort to simply not terracing the 
building and adding addresses as points and/or an addr:interpolation line.

In either case, if the name of the building is a part of the address 
("dependent thoroughfare") there is currently no suitable OSM tag for 
it. I've seen cases of addr:place, addr:substreet or addr:parentstreet 
but there is no established consensus yet.
