i did a similar thing where there was a building of flats but the
flats were accessible via different stairwells. e.g: each flat was
flat N, Henry house, coin street. the stairwells i entered as
interpolation lines linked to the building (hey, its a way) and the
building i then linked to the street.

my attempts can be seen here (much less beautiful than dave's)
