This is per NYC BC  - 2008.  It states you can have a door at the top of an interior residential stair provided that it doesn't swing over the top step. Does this mean you do not need a landing as long as the door swings away from the stairs? Door in question in image below.

It looks to me as if the space at the top when you open the door serves the intended purpose. Obviously not my area of expertise, but we're obviously not talking wheelchairs or walkers here, so the person who is able to use the stair pushes the door open and then steps into the space. However, what about the handrail? Any help from an actual expert here?
