Absolutely you can do that. A stair shaft is fire-rated, making it as safe or safer than the corridor.  There is not enough information on your floorplan to make that call on that building, but the concept of exiting through a stair shaft is permitted.

I cannot find anything in the code that would not allow this but its causing questions in the office. Can one of the required 2 exits on the first floor pass through a stair shaft? See attached example.
