Basement Stair Ceiling Odd
There is probably a support beam running through the space at the bottom of the stairs. You would need to open the ceiling in that area to see what's going on.
It looks as though there has been some renovation there. Normally you would see the staircase to the second floor nested there in the closet.
Raising the ceiling would do nothing, you would need to remove the floor in front of the closet to increase the headroom.
