This paper traces the development of domestic architecture in the Classical Greek and Roman world, noting that it was less pronounced than that of more public works.

The most prevalent structures in both societies prior to the Classical period were wooden dwellings with a pointed roof and an opening at the top to let in light and let out smoke from the hearth, and these buildings did not have second stories.
