Lantern of Chagrin Valley
Suhail was the Engineer of Record for this project and provided all planning and engineering services.
Lantern of Chagrin Valley is a $14M state-of-the-art assisted living facility located in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. The facility is designed specifically to improve the quality of life for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. The hallways are carpeted green to look like grass. The interior courtyards and corridors have been built to resemble houses with front porches overlooking a golf course. A sound system plays the sounds of birds chirping. Fiber optics in a “sky ceiling” mimic daytime and nighttime. Those who suffer from Alzheimer’s tend to retain memories from their younger years, so the facility serves as a time capsule for these seniors, many of whom grew up during the 1930s and 1940s.
