They are different ways of describing the same thing - what do you mean by "explain by which space we can describe both quantities"?

i mean electric field needs vector space -so what do we do for electric potential as it is scalar.

Both their domains are open subsets of ##\mathbb{R}^{3}##; only their codomains differ.
