Can stair landing space overlap door landing space?


I'm trying to design a set of stairs for an optional 2nd floor. To get the stairs to fit as I like, the required bottom landing area crosses in front of an opening (technically a jamb without a door) into a hallway. Another stair alternative I have would have the bottom landing passing in front of the non-operating side of a sliding glass door.

Are either, both, or none of these conditions legal? Or must the landing area be 100% dedicated to the role of stair landing?

Thanks,

Dale

I'd like to leave 2 of the three stairs in the plan: The left-front and one of the other two - can't quite decide which we like most.
