You can hide and unhide Items and Buildings using the designation menu or look mode.
Hidden items/buildings will still be there and will still be available to dwarves usage, except they will not be visible on screen and will instead show what is on the tile other than they (or just the tile alone). You can still view the object in look mode.
To hide or unhide a building or item, you can loo at an item, and then press to hide/unhide that item, or, alternatively, you can use the esignations menu, get into the item options menu with and ide or unide a large group of items/buildings.
Note that if you hide all stone from the stock menu, all buildings made of stone will be hidden as well.
To unhide a building, you can use the ask menu to see the items it is built with, and use to toggle hidden.
This can cause what appear to be bugs, if cage traps are hidden after they're set. In this case, use to select only the mechanisms, and not the cage. This will hide the trap, but still allow the cage to be seen after trigger. Weapon traps need all their weapons and the mechanisms hidden to disappear.
