If you are making reference to safety issues regarding the downstairs staircase opening, I believe there is a thick wall phenolic sheet that spans the opening floor to ceiling that provides the needed protection. I missed it at first. Looks very nice.

Five Horizons Development
There would be, all stairs are required to have hand rail. Doesn't mean the GC didn't put a temp up and then take it back off after CO per the owner / architect's preference.

ESL Hardwood Floors
My guess is that this is a white oak floor with a slight white wash finish applied.

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Rooms I'd Like to See Wrapped Up as Gifts for the Holidays!
When I recently saw this image I knew it would be the photo to show an architect if ever building a dream house. This massive front door with its curved lines and painted gray millwork would set the tone for a dramatic entry and home.

A glass wall encasing a stairwell brings in a reflective quality and is in striking contrast to the brick.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Wonderful Material Marriages
Glass + PaintThe combination of a highly saturated paint and a single sheet of floor-to-ceiling clear glass appears effortless, understated and forceful. In small spaces this treatment can be used very effectively. Consider how this hallway would feel if the glass were replaced by a painted wall or if there were a busy combination of guardrail, newell post and balusters.The painted stair element, along with the entry door and trim, are the dominant elements in this compressed space. There’s simply not enough visual room for competing objects, and the glazing insertion reflects this.Why this marriage works: Glass allows deeply saturated paint colors to advance and is a classically modern complement to any color palette.

Here a medium brown wood on the ceiling lends the space a warm tone. When someone is seated, a room’s ceiling has a large impact on the visual perception of a space, which means a smaller amount of wood can be used on the ceiling to counterbalance the large mass of concrete walls and floor. This space highlights a common design trick architects use when deciding how to use a material combination. By assigning very specific materials to specific surfaces — walls, ceilings, floors — we develop a logic about their application. In this case the ceiling planes are wood, and the solid exterior walls are concrete. We could even push the idea to the extreme by saying all horizontal planes here are wood, all vertical planes are concrete, all interior walls are board-formed concrete and all exterior walls are waxed concrete.
