Secretary of the Interior’s Standards
9. New additions, exterior alterations or related new construction will not destroy historic materials, features, and spatial relations that characterize the property. The new work shall be differentiated from the old and will be compatible with the historic materials, features, size, scale and proportion, and massing to protect the integrity of the property and its environment.

Charleston Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties
7. Additions or exterior alterations to historic properties should be sympathetic to historic materials, features, and spatial relationships that characterize the property. The new work should be compatible with the historic materials, features, size, scale, proportion, and massing to protect the integrity of the property and it’s setting. To respect the authenticity of the historic structure and its context and setting, the new alterations or addition should be clearly discernible from the old. The differentiation may or may not be stylistic, and may be as subtle as a change in building footprint, material, or other means.
