"Akamai" means intelligent, the choice of name is our customer's choice for whatever reason they may have. Habitats ARE an intelligent lifestyle as they are light on the earth.... sustainable .... exquisitely functional ... and so much fun to design. This very elegant "hale" (home) is sophisticated in every sense of the word. Throughout the design process I was always impressed with the owner's choices especially once all was assembled as it is a very personal journey of creation. Now, Akamai is perched on the edge of Mauna Kea over-looking the enormous blue ocean that lies between Hawaii and Asia. The Hamakua Coast has ideal weather and is perfect for off-grid living. I can't wait to see how it evolves with the inevitable landscaping that will surround this little gem!
