A traffic-signal box in a park in Stamford seems to echo its surroundings. Local artists have been painting the metal boxes.

A neighbour town did such three years ago - it was done (as far as I know) - for the first time in Germany in 1993 in Hamburg.

It has been quite common here.

I like a lot of the descriptions in the article.

I have to admit I haven't paid that much attention to signal box size lately.
It makes sense to do something like this with the bigger ones.
