How to specify the type of space ('Knowledge-base', 'Documentation') when creating space via API

I'm able to create a generic 'Blank' space using the API, but what I need to be able to do is create 'Knowledge base' spaces. I'm able to do this via the WebUI but I'm having trouble identifying where to specify the space type in the API even after checking all the documentation I can find.

This is what I'm using for the API Space creation and it works, I just can't specify 'Knowledge base' as the type of space I want to create. Please help. Thanks

curl --request POST \
--url 'https://<domain>/wiki/rest/api/space' \
--header 'Authorization: Basic xxxxxxxx' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
"key": "SPACEKEY",
"name": "SPACE TITLE",
"description": {
"plain": {
