They did it in a very simple way: they built their homes out of stone and clay with tile floors. All these materials are slow to absorb heat and release it on the other side.
Most homes in ancientg Greece were made of mud and clay. These materials could be kept moist, which helped homes to stay cooler. Roofs were often made of tile which was effective in reflecting sun and heat as opposed to absorbing it. Small windows with wooden shutters also helped keep out the sun, and trees were planted on the east and south sides of homes to provide shade from the sun’s direct rays in the hottest parts of the day.
