vaulted ceiling, creating a 2nd level


I am about to start a new project in my condo. I have an open space 10x12'. My goal is to create a platform off of one of my landings. I would like to know the best way to approach this project. All three of my walls are load bering and I have major support on the stairs landing. I am just trying to find the best way to ancher the support beams. I found a dyi pic


Any help would be appreciated.

I'm trying to figure out why?
That's going to block all the natural light coming in from those windows.
Keep in mind you have to have at least 6'8" from the nose of the stair tread for head room.
