I have translated the Dutch word gebouw click to
  hear - 2 as 'building,' but it does not mean exactly the same. It is only used for larger constructions: speaking Dutch, I wouldn't call a huis click to
  hear ('house') a gebouw.
(Het) kantoor click to hear 'office' - (het) kantoorgebouw click to hear 2 'office building'
(het) bureau (French) click to hear can mean 'desk,' but it can also mean 'office' or 'department,' like (het) politiebureau click to hear ('police station')
(het) hout click to hear 'wood' - (de) baksteen click to hear 'brick' (plural: bakstenen click to hear 2) - (het) cement click to hear 'mortar, cement' - (het) beton click to hear 2 'concrete' - builders
The Dutch word flat click to
  hear comes from English of course. It means both a high-rise (or mid-rise) apartments building, and an apartment in a building like that. The diminutive flatje click to
  hear is only used for the apartment. Dutch also has the word apartement click to
  hear - but it is not often used.
Sounding the same as flats, there is a Dutch word flets click to
  hear that means 'pale, washed-out color.'
The Dutch word for 'skyscraper' is wolkenkrabber click to
  hear 2 which literally translates as 'clouds-scratcher.'
(het) schuurtje click to hear - a small shed, like in a yard
(het) woonerf click to hear 2 is a street or neighborhood where traffic calming measures to slow down motorized transport try to give a friendlier atmosphere and more safety for pedestrians and bicyclists
