Description:

Switched upon the standard Gnome 3 desktop. Only then with with added features...
Needed widgets:

(top) menubar
- latte spacer https://store.kde.org/p/1287102
- kde global menu (on system)
- switch user (system)
- event calendar https://store.kde.org/p/998901/
- kde systemtray (on system)
- latte window button applet. This applet (upper right) takes care of the merging of the top-bar and the window-decoration-bar when a window is maximized. It does this in a spectacular way thus saving screen-space and clutter. You can not just install this widget in the normal way from the kde-store. Perhaps your distribution has a binary file from this widget but I had to build it (in Debian).
first (in Debian, Kubuntu. Neon)
sudo apt install cmake extra-cmake-modules qtdeclarative5-dev libqt5x11extras5-dev libkf5iconthemes-dev libkf5plasma-dev libkf5windowsystem-dev libkf5declarative-dev libkf5xmlgui-dev libkf5activities-dev build-essential libkf5wayland-dev git gettext libkf5archive-dev libkf5notifications-dev libxcb-util0-dev libsm-dev libkf5crash-dev libkf5newstuff-dev libkdecorations2-dev libkf5coreaddons-dev libqt5quickwidgets5 libkf5sysguard5 libkf5sysguard-dev
Then download the widget https://store.kde.org/p/1272871/ (look under "Files")
Unpack the tar.gz
Navigate into the "root" of the newly created folder
When in Dolphin press F4 (or open in terminal) and give: "bash install.sh".
The top-bar is blurred. It is more readable that way I think.

(left) dock
- kde application dashboard (on system) with “nine dots icon” https://store.kde.org/p/1328320/ (when de nine dots icon is copied to /usr/share/icons (sudo cp start-here.svg /usr/share/icons) this latte lay-out will automatically use it. This dock is not blurred.

Used icon themes:

flat-glass-Color https://store.kde.org/p/1328321/ , modified mix of papirus, flat-remix, vimix, numix and others
ultrflatOrangeLichteDskp https://store.kde.org/p/1328322/ modified mix of themes.

To get this look install both icon themes.
Choose the ultraflatOrangeLichteDskp theme.
It will use icons from the flat-glass-Color theme when the system needs them.

Last changelog:

on version 0.3 10 months ago

I made some small changes. One of them being surrounding the digital clock in the top-bar with latte-spacer widgeds set to use the available space. This way the clock - in "rest" - will be in the middle. Strange that I didn't think of that earlier....

Thank you for your suggestion Psifidotos. I'm honored to have a reaction of you! As far as I can see the answer to your suggestion is simple:
When I should choose your approach I couldn't have the situation of the second screenshot of this latte-layout (Gn3-latte-dock). The LibreOffice menu simply is too wide, the clock has to move from the middle to an other place. This doesn't happen when I put the clock between the Justify splitters (or I am mistaking)....

@Pieter: WindowAppMenu has an option called "Always use available width". If this is checked, the clock remains centered, but the menu becomes horizontally scrollable if it is too wide.

Why didn't you use Justify alignment in order to center the clock? By design whatever is inside the Justify splitters is centered. I would propose to remove Latte Spacers totally in order to center something.
