Hi, near where I live there's a street of buildings with two levels, flats on the top and takeaways or small shops on the ground floor and I'm not quite sure how to tag them correctly.

So far I've been marking the area as just a generic building with two levels and then putting the shops in as features and marking them as being on the ground level, but it's not really catching that there are flats there. Also some of them are technically one large building split into two flats and two stores and I'm not sure how accurate to be.

Possible duplicate of https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/31586/adding-areas-for-flats-above-shops but it is also possible to draw areas over areas (though many renderings might not make that clear) e.g. https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/51.80587/1.15535
