The Human-Oriented Built Environment Lab (HOBEL) is the research laboratory of Dr. Dusan Licina within the smart living lab in the School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) at EPFL.

The focus of HOBEL is centered on advancing the knowledge of the intersections between people and the built environment with an aim to ensure high indoor environmental quality for building occupants with minimum energy input.

The key mission of HOBEL is to improve the knowledge in the domains of indoor air quality, assessment of human exposure to airborne pollutants, dynamics and fate of pollutants in buildings, advanced energy efficient ventilation systems and controls, tools and methods for enhanced building environmental monitoring, thermal comfort of humans and their behavior.
