Change base Field of Vector Space

Given a number field $L$, I can construct a vector space $V$ over the rational field as follows :

V,fr,to = L.vector_space()

Now, if I want to define the same vector space over a subfield of $L$, say $K$ rather than the rational field, is there any command.

This is covered in the documentation on relative number fields.

Bottom up construction:

sage: K.<i> = QuadraticField(-1)
sage: R.<x> = PolynomialRing(K)
sage: L_over_K.<a> = K.extension(x^2 - 2)
sage: V,from_V,to_V = L_over_K.relative_vector_space()
sage: V.base_field() == K
True
sage: V.dimension()
2
sage: W,from_W,to_W = L_over_K.absolute_vector_space()
sage: W.base_field() == QQ
True
sage: W.dimension()
4

Top down construction:

sage: L.<i,a> = NumberField([x^2 + 1, x^2 - 2])
sage: L_over_K.<ii,aa> = L.relativize(i)
sage: K = L_over_K.base_field()
sage: V,from_V,to_V = L_over_K.relative_vector_space()
sage: V.base_field() == K
True
sage: V.dimension()
2
sage: W,from_W,to_W = L_over_K.absolute_vector_space()
sage: W.base_field() == QQ
True
sage: W.dimension()
4
