All Souls Langham Place is a Grade I listed Commissioners' church at the junction of Regent Street and Portland Place, originally constructed to the designs of John Nash in the Regency Style - the last of his churches to survive - and consecrated in 1824.

Matthew Lloyd Architects were appointed in 2019 to carry out a full programme of refurbishment and repair works to the external fabric of the church following the production of a Building Fabric Report by Alex Sherratt, the church's Quinquennial Inspector.

The programme of works, timed to coincide with the church's Bicentenary in 2024, involves the complete renewal of the slate roof to the nave as well as replacing existing copper roofs with lead, in keeping with the original design. The opportunity is also being taken to carry out repairs to, and a complete cleaning of, the external stone facades as well as repairs and alterations to the portico steps to improve accessibility and the relighting of the Rotunda and Spire.
