Through her magazine research, Kay found the work of Charlotte, North Carolina, architect Ken Pursley. In his projects, she saw the rustic yet sophisticated style she and Leo were after. In Ken, Kay found a visionary partner who could translate her ideas into a home beyond her imagination. Here, Kay and Ken describe how Camp Berard came together.
