The Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam’s Jordaan district takes its name from the breweries that once lined its banks, but while noise and activity has long since disappeared from the broad, tree-lined canal, the stately houses and warehouses of the brewers remain. Considered by locals to be one of the most beautiful canals in the city, it is here, benefiting from the light that comes flooding in across the open canal, that the Salvatori apartment is situated.
