stair cavity

I am living in an old building in Paris (France) and i'd like to install stairs between the 2 levels of my appartements.
I am looking for advices about the rules for a stair cavity.
Can i do it all by myself (after the studies of an architect ) ?
The ceiling of the appartement below is made with old beams, plaster and maybe bricks (as far as I know)
The problem I think is not to dig the cavity, but how to reinforce the stucture and the remainings beams.
Maybe they are books about this problem ?
Thanks for ur advices

You might look into circular stair kits that come with a base to spread the weight of it across a section of floor and the beams below.
Good Luck!
