Adding a water feature into a Penrose Staircase. This is not difficult if you know something about plumbing. You can run plumbing pipe anywhere you want. Here below is some info from wiki.

It also depends on how you want to incorporate a water feature into it as there are numerous option to choose from. Without knowing exact details on your build, its not a process that can transpire without more information from the person wanting to build this.

The impossible staircase, often known as the Penrose stairs, is an impossible object invented by Oscar Reutersvärd in 1937 and popularized subsequently by Lionel Penrose and his son Roger Penrose. It’s a two-dimensional representation of a staircase that makes four 90-degree turns as it ascends or descends while still forming a continuous loop, such that a human could climb them indefinitely yet never get any higher. In three-dimensional Euclidean geometry, this is manifestly impossible.

The “continuous staircase” was initially given in a 1959 essay by the Penroses, which was based on Roger Penrose’s so-called “Penrose triangle” published in the British Journal of Psychology in 1958

In the next year, M.C. Escher found the Penrose steps and created his now-famous lithograph Klimmen en dalen (Ascending and Descending) in March 1960. In the same year, Penrose and Escher were made aware of each other’s work .

In his print Waterval (Waterfall), published in 1961, Escher expanded on the idea.

“Each section of the construction is acceptable as showing a flight of stairs,” the Penroses wrote in their original piece, “but the connections are such that the picture, as a whole, is inconsistent: the steps constantly fall in a clockwise manner.” More info
