The original design in the first photo will not work. There is nothing to cause water to pass through the media. For that design to work the bottom of the lift tube would need to be plugged and holes drilled in the sides so water would have to pass through the media to get to the lift tube. So, the basic idea is ok but needs to be modified to work. The bottle design, is basically a box filter, and will also work.
