This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Three more open underneath stairs to match Maxis stairs. 

Steadfast Stairs (balustrade)
Found in Build / Stairs for §40

Country Stairs (loft)

A bit lower than the original stairs since I removed a small section on each step.

While I love crocobaura's work, his concrete stairs looked unnatural without the smooth bottom and, of course, can't be recolored.

Could you make the stairs from the H&M stuff open as well?
Me? Sarcastic? Never.
