Wouldn't it be good practice that in such a situation they have some form of makeshift way of shielding the interior of the building or that the interior materials are designed to be more durable than usual?
I don’t know, make a door at the top of the stairs. I’ll tell you what they shouldn’t do. They shouldn’t build some permanent or even semi-permanent barrier which would destroy that striking corner entrance. This would disrupt the aesthetic vision of the architects and make a near-perfect piece of design decidedly imperfect.
