Please advise whether there is something that can be done to reduce the heat during Summer. I have two rooms there.

Also, I would like to find out how much it would cost, approximately.

Insulate and build an air space with natural convection to allow heat to escape. Or ventilate with a fan to force heat out, but remember, removing air also necessitates recovering air from another area, preferably lower and cooler.
