Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Lead Dreamer
Working for his first firm at age 16, Ken’s architectural roots began early. While attending architecture school at Auburn University, he developed a passion for residential design and historic preservation. Upon graduation, Ken was able to cultivate his interest in residential design under the tutelage of his mentor and friend, Bobby McAlpine. While serving as a project architect at McALPINE, Ken was fortunate to work on a variety of homes and properties throughout the South. It was this exposure that eventually led him to venture out and sink his own roots in Charlotte. In 2005, Ken founded Pursley Architecture and in 2012 partnered with fellow Auburn alumnus Craig Dixon, forming Pursley Dixon Architecture. Ken is active in his community, formerly serving on the board of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission and chairing its design review committee. He is also a founding member of the Institute of Classical Art & Architecture – North Carolina Chapter and an active member of the Leaders of Design Council. When not designing beautiful homes, you can find Ken relaxing in his recently restored mid-century modern home, most likely with music playing and cocktail in hand.
