N2SH Design Studio is a boutique Melbourne-based practice providing specialist consulting services focusing on healthcare, aged care, laboratories and other controlled environments, to both public and private sector clients. Following a successful career with some of Australia, and the United Kingdom’s largest and most prestigious design firms, Managing Director, Nic Hughan, formed N2SH to address a market that he understood to be poorly serviced at the time – delivering specialist services for small-to-medium scaled projects in both regional and metropolitan contexts.


Since its inception in 2015, N2SH has successfully delivered more than 170 projects from our studio in Melbourne. More recently, our Hong Kong studio was established to deliver specialist services to a small number of international Clients. Our specialist skills and knowledge base have been acquired working on some of the most complex and prestigious healthcare, aged care, wellness and clinical/scientific research projects in Australia, South-east Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
