We investigate the connection between lozenge tilings and domino tilings by introducing a new family of regions obtained by attaching two different Aztec rectangles. We prove a simple product formula for the generating functions of the tilings of the new regions, which involves the statistics as in the Aztec diamond theorem (Elkies et al. (1992) [2,3]). Moreover, we consider the connection between the generating function and MacMahon's q-enumeration of plane partitions fitting in a given box.
