I just startled myself by remembering another illustrator who uses it. Martin Provensen uses it in Shaker Lane and possibly others. Gonna dig out more of them.
I believe the classic in the sub-genre is The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton.

Possibly relevant is that my favourite picture book as a child was one about a piano that was painted different colours by many owners throughout its years. 'Time-lapse' sounds as good a tag as any, unless you want to use an appropriate variation of 'same time, same place'.
I just bought my own copy of Innocenti's The House, and at the same time purchased The Great Green Mouse Disaster.
Waddell gets first billing as author, but since there is no text, he's actually just the idea man. He enlisted an illustrator who has a lot of practice in this technique though. Philippe Dupasquier has drawn a series of books called Busy Places. I intend to check some of those out.
While there are some interesting details in this hotel story, it is a failure overall. First the premise - green mice? And the Mouseman was invited for some sort of performance act at the hotel. Right. There are all sorts of crime and oddness going on, and the security guard remains in his cellar room imbibing. The elevator attendants play tic-tac-toe, never once taking on passengers. There are no characters who are worth caring about through the whole disaster.
