14 – 15 Langham Place is a grade II listed building, located on the south-west side of Portland Place within the Regent Street Conservation Area. The building is linked internally with the Langham Hotel, also grade II listed, to the north. The existing building dates to 1930, designed by Sir Herbert Baker and Alexander Scott, replacing an earlier four storey building, of a similar footprint. The building was originally constructed as an office block with a branch of Barclays Bank at ground and basement floor levels. Internally, the building has been altered as a result of its change of use from a bank to a spa facility. The original bank fittings, with exception of the wall panelling, have been removed and a modern stair inserted within the main banking room.
