Walter Frederick Cave was articled to Sir Arthur Blomfield and after a time spent travelling abroad set up his own practice in London in 1889.
He was a member of the inner circle of the Art Worker`s Guild and used forms of expression very close to those of CFA Voysey. Indeed in 1897 he took over one of Voysey`s commisions, a house in Steatham Park, London. Other Voyseyesque houses followed but he later changed his style to a more French Classical look. He also designed furniture, light fittings and also painted.
