This research applies a methodological approach, based on the functional analysis, to the study of domestic architecture on Crete during the Late Bronze Age (1600-1450 BC). This application is a tool with which Neopalatial architecture may be read, it shows the way of how the Minoans thought and organized their space. The range of buildings selected in this study belongs to the Neopalatial village of Kommos. Analysis of the houses are based on the use of instruments designed to detect the function of each room. The way spatial layouts were organized shows the existence of a private and a public area, in each area the rooms were separated by doors, stairs and corridors. This division implies the existence of different circulatory patterns in and out of the buildings and within they, this manifests the gradation between community and privacy and the presence of various function performed by rooms. Analyzing the layout of Neopalatial buildings at Kommos we can discover the way in which the Minoans conceived their houses, not only private residential areas, but also working and meeting areas. This heterogeneity expresses a part of their culture; the intricate internal layout of the Neopalatial buildings show the social complexity of Minoan civilization linked to the needs of the inhabitants.
