It is clear you put a lot of thought into your design.
The trundle bed is easy.
For the platform, My recommendation would be a torsion box.
These can be done with tops and bottoms or just tops.

Now a standard step is 7” tall and 11” deep. If you made the platform 14” tall, it would be a one step up design and provide ample clearance to roll the trundle under.

The murphy wall would mount to the wall, but be framed to look like it is resting on the platform.

The book shelf would just sit on the platform, anchored with a few screws for stability.
The desks could either fold out or slide out depending on the design.

For the in floor storage you could make the torsion box with top openings in that area and a walled off section.

Overall, this looks quite doable. The trundle first, then platform to suit, then murphy bed, then shelves.
